O'Connor to Retire From Supreme Court

Why is this a problem? She's like 100 years old. Let her retire.

Um, let Stevens, Ginsburg, Breyer and Souter retire, too.

Rehnquist being replaced by a hardcore conservative is one thing - the balance of the Court wouldn't change. But O'Connor's vote is crucial, and having another Thomas or Scalia on the Court would mean the Republicans really would control all three branches of government. Bush does not compromise, so that sort of selection is what I expect. This is one judicial nomination fight the Democrats need to make.
