Supreme Court Nominee Poll
With Bush expected to name a new Supreme Court nominee any day, there's no time like now to ask who you would like to see on the Court:
I don't have a "none of the above" option, but if none of these candidates trip your trigger, use the comments to tell me who you want.
Update: Wow, it didn't take long for this poll to become irrelevant. Bush has chosen Harriet Miers to replace Sandra Day O'Connor. I know nothing about her. Anyone want to venture an opinion?

|Well, for those wanting a little diversity on the Court, not only is she a woman, but she went to SMU for both undergrad and law school. That certainly breaks up the Yale & Harvard dominance of the Court at least a little bit.
She has a degree in Math and was the first woman to head the Texas State Bar.
She's single with no kids and apparently wears a size 6 shoe (lucky b*tch can totally make out at sample sales).

|Any situation where a Bush nominee seems to be having less trouble with moderate Democrats than with just about any of the Republicans indicates problems. Although the Ivy League preference is long-standing, it bothers me a bit that it seems to be deemed as necessary for a nominee. SMU isn't a bad school, folks. Also, the theory that a nominee should already be a judge prior to his or her nomination doesn't reflect our history. Anyone ever heard of Louis Brandeis?
Notwithstanding that, I also doubt she'll be confirmed.
