SCOTUS Justice O'Connor Retiring

Moderate conservative Sandra Day O'Connor is retiring from her post as a justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. It'll be interesting to see who Bush appoints to replace her, and if the Republicans will grow a pair and push her replacement's nomination through the Senate against the inevitable Democrat stonewalling.

I nominate Judge Alexander Kozinski of the 9th Circuit to fill O'Connor's seat. I've read selections from a couple of his opinions and they impressed me as very erudite. Hopefully, we won't end up with another David Souter.
