    It's gonna be some unknown.

    My dark horse? John Cornyn.

    Which, actually, gives your approach a chance.

    The SCOTUS is Extraordinary.

    •  I agree - it will be a dark horse. (none)
      The White House already knows we have an extensive playbook for all of the likely nominees.

    •  Good idea (none)
      I had just come to the conclusion that Bush would probably not appoint any of the mentioned women, but would wait until Rehnquist is forced by health to retire next term and then pick Janice Brown, after she has some time to learn a little federal law and procedure.  And couple it with his elevation of Scalia.

      This one is more of a dress rehersal since, remember, they didn't have a Supreme Court pick the first term.  So a dark horse, politician rather than a judge, known conservative but not a total loon, makes some sense.  

      Don't know if Cornyn fits the bill, but this is probably the right track.

      Thanks Armando, you just made me physically ill.

      It's the RULE OF LAW, stupid!
