Supreme Court Announcement Tonight

President Bush will go before the cameras and the American people tonight at 9PM to announce his choice for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's replacement to the Supreme Court. There's been much speculation these past two weeks over whether he will choose another woman. There's also been much talk since last week that Bush will use this potentially controversial appointment to divert media attention away from the growing Karl Rove scandal. As such, I am predicting television's Judge Judy will be the lucky gal. A) she's a woman; and B) she's certain to cause quite a stir. The newspaper and cable news folks will have a veritable field day with this. Look, it's not so far-fetched. She's got years of experience on the bench, she's feisty and she calls 'em as she sees 'em. The high court could use her moxie. Ok, back to reality. Bush has a very major opportunity of historic significance tonight. He can either show he is truly a "uniter not a divider," or he can throw our country further into its already widening partisan canyon. Let's hope he makes the right choice for all Americans and not just the evangelical wing of the GOP. Andy
