Judicial Independence in the United States

President Bush - the leader of a nation in the midst of a massive disaster on a scale never seen on this continent - has named John Roberts as hsi choice to replace Rehnquist as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

This leaves me asking myself one serious question:

How can a judiciary remain independent and free of poiltical influence when the court’s highest job is chosen by the leader of the executive branch of the government?

I see an inherent conflict here - others might not.
