There Goes the Swing Vote

Hold onto your hats, because Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor announced her retirement from the high court this morning.

The bad news: Bush gets to nominate her replacement. Perhaps he'll choose someone who believes that the Supreme Court has no right to exist. It worked for the UN. One thing's for sure: whomever he taps for the job will be a "good man."

The good news: New Supreme Court Justices have a pretty spotty track record of living up to the ideological expectations of the presidents who appoint them.

Watching and waiting.
