I wonâ€™t pretend that I know who the Presidentâ€™s nominee will be to the Supreme Court. But I have been following the educated guesses of the pundits in the press. The scuttlebutt is that Bush will nominate a woman who is an originalist. Among those who might fit that description and who are likely candidates:
Edith Brown Clement
Janice Rogers Brown
Mary Anne Glendon
Lillian R. BeVier
John S. Shannon
Maura D. Corrigan
(Sources: Bill Kristolâ€™s article and MSNBCâ€™s list of prospective nominees.)
The Washington Post and MSNBC have pages that give information on many of these prospects. Some of the ones they list are not females.
Justin Taylor has links to profiles of some of the ones on this list.
Dude, you are the scuttlebutt.
Go Scalia! Scalia for chief justice!!
Dude, that job is not open!
