Justice O'Connor Stepping Down

ABC News is reporting that Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first female Supreme Court Justice, is stepping down. This is a bit of a surprise, since most have speculated that Chief Justice Rehnquist would be the first to step down. However, Justice O'Connor's retirement has also been widely anticipated.

I imagine there will be pressure to get a nomination in before the Court's new term starts this October. Should be an interesting Summer. We'll see how the filibuster deal holds up now. If you've left off checking Confirm Them, it might be a good time to add it back to your bookmark.
