WaPo: Supreme Court Announcement Tomorrow
"Republicans close to the White House" tell the Washington Post that President Bush is "poised" to announce tomorrow the candidate who will replace Harriet Miers as the candidate to replace Justice O'Connor. Quick action, calculated to distract the news media from the Plame investigation, may also be calculated to consolidate the Republican Party behind a nominee who is trusted to advance a conservative agenda.
His ideological likeness to United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia has earned him the nickname "Scalito."
If Bush does announce a name tomorrow, will it supplant the Plame story, or (with the encouragement of bloggers) will the media be motivated to cover both stories with equal vigor?
