No Fight?

The president nominated another unknown for the Supreme Court today, showing us that he intends to avoid the kind of confirmation battle that one of the more controversial judges could have caused.

What does this say about Bush? That he's weak? Probably not. It probably means that he has other priorities that he doesn't want disrupted by a judicial battle. This is especially true considering the president's low public approval ratings and lack of support from Congress on issues such as social security and immigration.

I think it means that he's tired. He'd rather pick a friend than have to vet someone new.

I think it means he's rewarded another crony. This time, one with no judicial record for mass media perusal, and a woman to boot!

Unless some damn big skeletons come crawling out of her closet, she'll get confirmed.

Coulda been worse, Sharon. She doesn't look to be an angry zealot
