Personal Betrayal at the Supreme Court

"Discord at the Supreme Court is deep and personal after Chief Justice John Roberts' surprise decision to side with the liberal justices in upholding a large portion of the president's health care plan. This discord is going to affect this Court for a long time -- and no one has any idea how it will be resolved," CBS News reports.

"Conservatives feel a sense of betrayal. They feel that Roberts changed his mind for the wrong reasons. If Roberts had been with the liberals from the beginning, sources tell me that would have been one thing; but switching his position -- and relatively late in the process -- infuriated the conservatives."

"Of course it's unclear why he switched. He may have been focused solely on the law. But that is not what some of his colleagues believe."
