Chief Does Not Speak A Lot During Oral Arguments?

by Armen

As I said below, there's considerable talk about the next Chief Justice of the United States in the blawsphere. Well, Legal Affairs Magazine is also hosting an online debate regarding the possibility of a Chief Justice Thomas. Stephen Presser would love to see a Chief Thomas, while Prof. Samuel Marcosson would not. Incidentally, Prof. John Yoo of Boalt Hall and torture memo fame thinks Thomas can spread more conservative rhetoric as an associate justice.

If Justice Thomas becomes Chief and "speaks a lot during oral arguments", I suggest a check of Justice Scalia to see if his lips are moving and where his hands are at all times.
