Via the AP: Bush to Nominate Alito to Supreme Court

President Bush, stung by the rejection of his first choice, will nominate Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, selecting a conservative federal judge to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, a moderate.


Bush planned to announce the nomination at 8 a.m. EST.

So much for the notion that the floating of Alito’s name was a bait-and-switch.

And, as a side note, while O’Connor was often a swing vote, I am not sure that she is a “moderate”, per se.

So, how many times do you think we will hear “Scalito” in the next 24 hours? Does Vegas have an over/under yet?

For sure: Alitot is qualified for the position, unlike some nominees of recent vintage.

OTB has more.
