O'Connor retires!

Well for a week or two it has appeared that Justice O'Connor, and not Rehnquist, would be the first to step down. O'Connor, the notorious swing-vote of the Supreme COurt, has retired at 75. Finally, conservatives have a chance to change up the current liberal leanings of the court. So PLEASE Bush, DO NOT nominate Alberto Gonzales. This seems to be th eworry of conservatives right now, but I really don't expect Rove or Bush to be dumb enough to do this, unless Rove thinks the Senate Democrats would try to filibuster Al, which would really work in conservatives favor as far as reaching out to Hispanics and angering independent voters. Now if only we could get Souter, Kennedy, or Ginsburg to retire as well.
