AP: White House narrowing high court list Preparing for possible Supreme Court vacancy (Monday, May 30, 2005 Posted: 11:22 AM EDT (1522 GMT) CNN.COM)
This is kind of sickening. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist is sick, with thyroid cancer. The Administration isn't waiting for him to step down, they're already making a list of candidates to nominate for the Supreme Court.
Given the Administration's track record, they're going to find the most vile of right wingers, because that's what their agenda is. To veer the country hard to the right, even though that's far outside of mainstream American ideals.
