What's Next for the SCOTUS

Captain Ed has posted a very insightful analysis of the John Roberts nomination end-game and what it might mean for the next SCOTUS nomination. Given that the rabid BHLs in the Senate have decided to pick up their marbles and go home I really hope that President Bush picks a Scalia/Thomas soul-mate to replace Justice O'Conner. He has no reason to do otherwise.

Who might that be? Captain Ed suggests one name. I think there are a few others that might be good also, as long as their name doesn't start with A.G. and end in Gonzales. One of the women or ethnic minority candidates would be nice, but not required, particularly if it is as a sop to the left. George Bush owes them NOTHING.

We shall see.
