Who's Going To Replace Rehnquist?

It's Bush's lucky day. My bet is one of the new ladies he just appointed to one of the Circuit's.

I'm going with Scalia as the C.J. (yeah, I'm on that bandwagon). And, a Mexican. Maybe a Mexican woman, but a Mexican for sure.

definitely Scalia for CJ and maybe the woman on the 5th circuit who was considered for o'Connor's spot, what was her name...interestingly enough my friend clerked for her

I see Scalia or Thomas as C.J., more likely Scalia. The way I see it, it doesn't really matter. Bush will appoint a conservative ideologue. I’m not tryin’ to get all political on ya, but realistically it’s what Bush must do to appease his base. The Democrats will mount a typically lame-ass fight during the confirmation process, wasting everyone’s time. Bush will get what he wants in the end.

Even though he’d old as hell, I think Stevens would be a great C.J. (fat fvcking chance)

By the way, I've been in a study vacuume all weekend. I had no idea of Rehnquist's passing. It's crazy that I'm getting my news from L.S.D.

I have inside sources that say he's opening negotiations with the Pope.  If that falls through, I suppose he may settle for Scalia.
