Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Can Rehnquist last until 2009?
That way his replacement would be (hopefully) nominated by a Democrat. Wishful thinking, I'm sure. But still I'm very surprised that he seems to not be resigning this year. He could still do it in the next few weeks, but each day that passes makes it more unlikely as Bush would have less time to confirm his nominee before the Court resumes in the early fall.
I often wonder why these guys don't want to retire and spend a few years on the beach before the stress they've put on themselves catches up to them, but I suppose there's something very appealing about shaping the world that you will leave to your descendants.
