    during her confirmation hearings: that it would be good to have her as Bush's nominee.

    You just knew SOME Presidential criminality would ultimately affect the White House Counsel's office.  You just can't cover up this much stuff for this long and not eventually get caught.

    Ask John Dean about that.

    Best case scenario for her as Justice would be that she recuses herself from cases involving White House or other Administration personel, which basically gives you a conservative punt on any executive branch-related legal proceedings.

    Worst case, she resigns prior to impeachment.  

    Either way, a 4-4 split at least with an option to buy during the next Dem Administration if she goes, which she would have in this case.

    Not bad considering the corporate legal assassin we got in her place for the next how many years.  I'd gladly have that trade back.
