Heres Presdidents Bushs remarks on Sandra Day OConnors resignation. I suppose when someone retires one should be generous but Bush seems too generous in my estimation in his praise of OConnor. Certainly, she hasnt been as bad Souter and she was on the right side in the Kelo case. In this inflationary age, I would give her a C- as a judge.
Bush calls for all sides to be civil in the run up to a vote to replace OConnor. Good luck.
I notice in her announcement, OConnor states that her resignation becomes effective upon the nomination and confirmation of her successor. Gee, I hope the Dems dont have 41 votes to block her successor and force her to serve anothe term.
