I agree with Ken5050. Just guessing from afar, but Owen makes sense for a lot of reasons. I'm not headed over to Tradesports though, until I hear she's in DC today.

Fred Thompson has an added plus on his resume.

He would get to play that cool "Law & Order" intro theme music everytime he enters the court.

Oh, swell. You're not young, and you still call yourself 'dude.'

Sorry........I didn't read the rest of what you wrote.......... that part made me laugh so much that I figured the rest wasn't worth much either....

(Well, I did read that 'to the fair observer who is a conservative' part at the end, and started laughing again.....)

No more conversation about your skilled observations, Dude. It's off topic and boring.

Very slick of WH to 'leak' the Edith(s) name(s). After that, the Conservatives are collectively relieved and there is less initial backbiting. And the Rat / MSM cabal begins attack mode in off hours. No time for Kennedy et.al. to begin the 10:00 pm press conferences. They have to make 'em 10:00 am when no one's watching.

Either way Kennedy is blitzed (pm) or sobering up (am) and ineffective.

All hail Karl Rove.

Think about it ... he's a lawyer, a good conservative, was a prosecutor (wasn't that sKerry's only "real" job?) and he is in a similar position now as was Cheney when GWB was looking for a Veep. The huge plus factor is that he's a former colleague of most of the Senators and he will give as good as he gets in any confirmation hearing.

Pick should be imminent before the hour is out talking heads have said he will tell senators before the seven o'clock hour is out.

How about John G. Roberts, named by the National Law Journal in 1999 as one of the top 10 civil litigators in Washington, argued in 1992 before the Supreme Court against using a federal civil rights law to stop Operation Rescue protests outside abortion facilities.

I pray this is so.

FYI,

What Roe v. Wade Should Have Said
New Book


JB

My new book, What Roe v. Wade Should Have Said, has just been published by New York University Press. (You can buy the book here and here). I asked a group of eleven scholars to rewrite the opinions in Roe v. Wade and its companion case, Doe v. Bolton, using only materials available as of January 1973 when the cases were decided. The contributors included Anita Allen ( Penn), Akhil Amar (Yale), Teresa Stanton Collett (St. Thomas), Michael Stokes Paulsen (Minnesota), Jeffrey Rosen (George Washington University), Jed Rubenfeld (Yale), Reva Siegel (Yale), Cass Sunstein (Chicago), Mark Tushnet (Georgetown), and Robin West (Georgetown).
