The Hurricane Seat?


Kathryn mentioned Tim Russert raising this on MTP this morning and Lanny Davis later said on Fox News that George Bush should nominate someone from the moderate, center of the country because of the hurricane. This follows Susan Estrich’s claim last evening that the seat should be filled by Edith Clement because she is a woman, and from Louisiana. I’ve heard of the supposed woman and minority seats on the court, but a hurricane seat? These commentators make clear that hurricanes aren’t the only things full of ill wind.
