Should Anyone Be Chief Justice?

This essay notes the many roles that the Chief Justice plays - several of which give him a vast amount of power over many different different kinds of government policy. His personnel powers alone are enormous. It is extremely important to remember these roles in considering whether or not John Roberts should hold the office - for, potentially, 30 years or more. The Chief is much more than first among nine. Whether anyone should wield this much power for decades is something that perhaps the country should reconsider.
