Sandra Day retires from the Supreme Court
effective upon the confirmation of her successor.
In other words, she'll get to go RV'ing in about 2012 or so. I mean, this would be an "extreme circumstance" justifying a Democrat filibuster, right?
Look for Bush to nominate someone OTHER than Alberto Gonzales to this position. Justice O'Connor's replacement will likely solidify the conservative wing of the court, as Justice O'Connor has been a swing moderate on several key votes in the past twenty years.
Bread and circuses for all us political junkies. The liberal's reaction should be very interesting.
