ABC News is reporting that Edith Clement is not Bush’s choice to replace O’Connor:
Judge Edith Clement — perceived by many observers as a potential frontrunner for the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor — is not President Bush’s choice for the high court.
An informed source told ABC News they had spoken with Clement and said she received a phone call from the White House this afternoon. According to the source, Clement was thanked for meeting with the president and sharing her views on the Supreme Court, but that the administration has decided to go in a “different direction.”
Curiouser and curiouser. And only 3 hours to go till we find out for sure. Man, I am such a geek.
