Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On September 5, 2005, President George W. Bush nominated John Roberts as Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court following the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist. Roberts served as a clerk for Rehnquist when he was an Associate Justice on the Court and had originally been nominated to replace Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor before Rehnquist's death. Prior to his nomination, Roberts had served as a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
