SCOTUS News from Specter & Leahy

Specter did a good job at the Roberts hearings... but he seems to have lost his way in my book.

Specter Urges Delay in Replacement of O'Connor at Supreme Court

Sept. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said he urged President George W. Bush today to delay nominating a replacement for retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Senator Arlen Specter, Republican of Pennsylvania, said he talked to Justice O'Connor about staying on the high court. ``She's prepared to do that'' through the court's term ending in June, Specter said. The president ``was noncommittal,'' Specter said. ``The body language was not very positive,'' Specter said.

Specter said the delay would give Congress and the rest of America more time to know John Roberts as chief justice. ``When we know a little more about Judge Roberts it's going to be easier with the next'' nomination, Specter said.

This is just idiotic...

And I hope that Leahy's backing of Roberts (take note ,Kossacks) isn't an indication of who's going to be nominated for O'Connor's slot.
