O'Connor is retiring...

I'm probably not the only one who was shocked at the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one concerned as well. The prospects of the type of Justice the President might propose and of a nasty and protracted partisan battle are not pleasant ones. I hope that we put enough pressure on the White House AND on the Senate to make sure that the nominee is mainstream and decent, not extremist! Make sure that YOUR Senators know we don't want an extreme right-wing idealogue to take the place of someone like Justice O'Connor who has helped keep the Court somewhat centered.
