Supposedly Bush will be announcing his pick for Justice O Connor's replacement tonight... Rumor is it will be Judge Edith Brown Clement. And I'm guessing that the early nature of the pick is to try and deflate the Rove controversy. Rumor early on was that Bush wanted to wait until later in the summer so as to leave the nominee twisting in the wind for less time, and to deprive the opposition of a chance to do any real digging on the nominee. Let the fun begin.
