O'Connor Retires From Supreme Court
So... Will W be "forced" (for political reasons) to nominate a woman in her place? Regardless, who do y'all (a little Texas lingo, there) think would be a good replacement?
It goes without saying (but I'm gonna say it anyway) that I think any nominee should be a strict constructionist. A Scalia would be good; a Thomas would be even better.
UPDATE: TechCentralStation's Pejman Yousefzadeh agrees that Clarence Thomas is a great standard by which to measure nominees.
UPDATE: Janice Rogers Brown might be a decent choice as well, although I'm not sure where she stands regarding judicial precedents, which in my opinion is where Scalia falls short.
