Scalia-ve Me Alone

The Christian Science Monitor reports on the possibility of a Scalia promotion:

During oral arguments at the high court, sometimes Scalia's tongue can be as sharp as his intellect. Critics say he lacks the necessary political skills to lead the court from confrontation to compromise. His prickly relationship with Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, in particular, could undercut his ability to assemble and hold a conservative majority in important cases.

Others say he may not want to be chief justice because the position would reduce his freedom to skewer his colleagues in sharply worded dissents while championing his vision of constitutional "originalism."

Link. Clearly this is in response to my earlier post. And it's a little more thoughtful than that anonymous "3L," too.
