Two Vacancies??

Sandra Day O'Connor, swing justice, is retiring. This is huge. While many feared that a Rehnquist retirement would further liberalize the court, as he is one of the more staunch originalists the court has, this has the potential to swing away from the Stevens axis. If Bush can appoint an originalist, we'll be in better shape.

But Bush would be wise to keep tight-lipped about any potential nominee until Congress returns from the summer recess. It's just way too long for the Senate leftists and their special interests to pick someone apart.
