Interesting back-and-forth over at The Corner on a possible Chief Justice O'Connor. Ramesh Ponnuru states that "...conservatives won't be too upset as long as that elevation is coupled with a solid conservative appointment to fill the vacancy on the bench." Bingo! Hold your cards, we have a winner. The alternatives are Scalia and Thomas, not easy sells. If you have a limited amount of political capital-spend it getting a good conservative to replace Rehnquist as associate justice rather than two Senate brawls.
