For faithful right-wingers, Chief Justice John G. Roberts' switcheroo on Obamacare is basically akin to a romance gone wrong. Yet here's the rub: He isn't going anywhere. The man is 57, has a lifetime appointment and, ironically, a great government health plan. He'll be rocking the black robes for a long, long time to come.
"Very often, people get into routines and ruts," Ms. Utay said. "They think they know each other, and the relationship gets boring and tedious. When somebody steps out, it can reignite a sense of excitement and bring a new level of interest."
"With Roberts, this steady, trustworthy guy all of the sudden stepped out and became the swing vote," she said.
