Update on SCOTUS Nomination

It appears that the Whitehouse is playing hardball on this nomination. First word this morning was that Bush was set to announce Edith Clement of the Fifth Circuit. ABC News just reported that Clement is not the nominee. This would appear to clear the way for a real originalist person to get the nod from Bush. This is great news. Let's get ready to rumble! In my opinion I think Bush & his advisors would do well to mimic the way NFL general managers select their #1 draft pick. They should go with the best available talent or their need. Michael Luttig, JRB, and Edith Jones fit perfectly in this scenario. I hope one of those three is the ultimate nominee tonight.
