Bush on SCOTUS


As a press conference with John Howard right now, the president’s first question was about the SCOTUS spot and whether or not he wants to appoint a woman. He didn’t say much: “I have thought about a variety of people…” He did say that he will nominate someone “who won’t legislate from the bench.”

“I’ll let you know when I’m ready to tell you who it is.” But where is he in the process? He is “comfortable” about where they are in the choosing “process. “
