Ya Think?

ROBERTS WAS CONFIRMED as chief justice of the U.S. by a Senate vote of 78 to 22. Bush could now face a tougher battle ahead for his next nominee to succeed retiring moderate Justice O'Connor. (my emphasis)

Someone is being paid big bucks over at the Wall Street Journal to pester us with the painfully obvious, and would it have hurt to simply tell the truth and say something akin to, 'the president must now look for a much tougher battle in his attempt to replace the retiring...'

"Could" is mealymouthed. "Could" means one is not certain. And why do I expect more when I know full well it ain't gonna happen.

Could it?
