    M. Scott Eiland says:

    Edith Jones has been on short lists for a potential Supreme Court seat since Ronald Reagan was in his second term–and the usual suspects on the left have been preparing to unleash the slime hoses on her for the whole time. If it’s her up for Rehnquist’s seat, prepare for an attack campaign that makes the campaign against Janice Rogers-Brown look like a tea party by comparison.

    Oliver says:

    Ted Olson? What, is Paula Jones otherwise occupied?

    What about State Rep. John Ford? His schedule just opened up.

    Cordially…

    Thomas says:

    i remember when the “list” came out for the new homeland security guy after ridge was stepping down and the “list” had about 6 or 7 names on it and when i got to the name Kerik, I said “there he is” and i knew it would be a colossal F-up. And it was. From this list you just posted, the name Ted Olson sticks out like a sore thumb just like Kerik’s did. Wife dies on a 9/11 plane, Paula Jones, etc (don’t think Bush won’t play that to the hilt) and therefore Olson will be a F-up. Just get someone in the SC that isn’t a career F-up like Thomas has been in the SC. No lapdogs please. I just beg that any nominee isn’t a lapdog. Kinda tough to ask of this Administration.

    I don’t care for his judicial philosophy and he has some baggage but Ted Olsen is very qualified to be an Associate Justice of the SCOTUS. That being said from a judicial philosophy I hope it isn’t Olsen. Whoever Bush nominates that person will be very conservative.

    Hey, Oliver! Congrats on making the big time!

    Shawn says:

    The nominee will be female and/or a minority.

    The only way it will be a white male is if it’s repayment for past favors or prepayment for future favors, i.e. Bolton and Kerik.
