Renewed Hope?

First Lady Wants A Woman Justice

Harry Reid says a consensus candidate is likely after meeting with President Bush and other Senators. Laura Bush says George should pick a woman. This shortlist from Emily Bazelon and David Newman offers a few women Bush could choose who might not annoy liberals enough to filibuster. He could also pick Edith Brown Clement, who is somewhat unknown but less rabidly conservative than, say, Luttig--and a bit older, making her a bit less scary as a lifetime appointment. Of course, Bush will have an easier time finding a woman who fills the bill if he has more than one pick...retire already, Rehnquist!
