Bush Meeting With Cabinet

As we wrote last night, Ashcroft is expected to resign. But will Bush accept it? If he uses his health (pancreatic problems) as a reason, probably yes.

Speculation is rampant about Supreme Court replacements and whether Bush will use a recess appointment before January to replace the ailing Chief William Rehnquist.

Some names being bandied about: Miguel Estrada; former Solicitor General Ted Olsen; Larry Thompson; even John Ashcroft.

Thompson's name is also being mentioned as a replacement for Attorney General. He served as Deputy Attorney General under Ashcroft and resigned last year. He gets our vote of confidence for Attorney General. He's very close to Clarence Thomas though, so I wouldn't be suprised to see him on the Supreme Court.
