Jonathan Adlers WSJ op-ed explains why those interested in the rule of law should be pleased with a Justice Alito. As Adler notes, Judge Alito "is not a dogmatic conservative; his record shows a man more interested in getting the law right and faithfully applying applicable precedents than scoring rhetorical points or advancing an ideological agenda. As he commented in an interview earlier this year, Judges should be judges. They shouldnt be legislators, they shouldnt be administrators." Adler concludes: "We may not all agree with all of [Roberts and Alitos] decisions, but we will respect their judgment, appreciate their analyses, and admire their commitment to the law."
