Politics: Rehnquist succumbs to thyroid cancer

That's pretty sad.

Politically speaking, I'm not sure what it does, as Bush simply has to replace a centrist conservative and a traditional conservative, which shouldn't exactly be difficult.

Seems like it'd be quite nice to appoint someone from the current court to chief justice, but I have a feeling Bush would rather appoint someone a tad bit younger to insure a conservative stays at the head of the bench for as long as possible.

But hey, he was a Chief Justice, and he wasn't particularly an asshole.

I mean, sometimes. But so am I.

Sad day.
