O'Connor is Retiring

I'll leave this up for the discussion, but I say SWEET! Check out the story here.

My favored nominees: women who have spines - Janice Brown and Edith Jones. Let the confirmation battles begin!

Well, I'm sure someone conservative will replace her - which is to be expected given that they have a majority in the government now - but I hope it is with a moderate (read as: rational) conservative.

I'm not implying that most conservatives are irrational, just saying that it is always good to have a rational person in power.

I am not well versed in Justice O'Connor's opinions. Today I am happy to celebrate her as a patriot who served long in a difficult position and leave later thoughts and wiser minds to posit how we may improve.

The confirmation battles will not be pleasant. I do not look forward to the fear-mongering that will overshadow hopes of nonpartisan attempts at rational, prudent decision-making. Sooner or later, we should remember we're preserving an instituion for future generations, not a President or Senator's constitutional preference - that is impossible. To much spirit to purchase the latter, on either side, will only waste political capital and aggravate our disunity.

Well put Andrew. This is also a chance for President Bush to restore some credibility to the most criminal and disfunctional regime since the Nixon regime.

Emilio Garza should get the nod. He's a rock star.
