  •  we'd be lucky (4.00)
    we aren't going to do any better than gonzalez.  his nomination would be a best case scenario.  he is the least conservative of all the people bush is considering; he's said that he would not overturn roe.

    in the end, i doubt bush will nominate him.  he wants a mini-scalia.

    •  Time for Janice Brown.... (none)
      I think the Bush administration will try and appoint Brown or Owen. It's brash, it's disgusting and it is completely in character for Bush.
      •  Repubs blow themselves up if this is true, (none)
        and Bush does nominate Brown or Owen, and the Dems filibuster (which they had BETTER do) and then the gang of 14 breaks up, and the Republicans go nuclear - it is somewhat a win for us.  Yes, we will have a nut on the SCOTUS, but, most Americans were against going nuclear, and most Americans do not like an abuse of power.  The Dems can yell long and hard about what a wacko Bush nominated and what a wacko the republican senate confirmed, taking apart 214 years of tradition to put this wingnut onto the Court.

        If you think Bush and the Republicans are losing the independent vote now, wait until after this scenario plays out.  That is why it is so perfect for this adminstration - it is the absolutely most arrogant, hubristic move they can make - which is why they will make it.

        It kind of warms my heart.

      •  And he'll combine the announcement... (none)
        ...with a recess appointment for Boulton.

        F-you is what he does best.
