We Now Return to our Regularly Scheduled Program: The Crackup of the Democratic Party

Via Fox News:

WASHINGTON — President Bush is nominating Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, The Associated Press has learned, choosing a long-time federal judge embraced by judicial conservatives to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Bio: A strong conservative voice in his 15 years on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is considered to be among the most liberal. He has been dubbed "Scalito" or "Scalia-lite" by some lawyers because his judicial philosophy invites comparisons to that of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

President Bush hinted on Monday that his next nominee for the Supreme Court would be a woman or a minority, saying that "diversity is one of the strengths of the country."

The president also expressed optimism that the Senate would confirm John Roberts as chief justice this week _ which seems virtually certain.

Bush, asked about his next nominee, said "I will pick a person who can do the job. But I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country." The president is under pressure from many quarters _ including his wife _ to pick a woman or a minority for the seat of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who is retiring.

It's hard to know what to think of Alito at this stage. There are a lot of conflicting reports. I guess we all, no matter our political persuasion, have to wait for the hearings.

+ don't tarnish all Democrats with the same brush. I don't that's fair.
