In an unsurprising move, Bush nominated Third Circuit Judge Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court this morning.
There will be a fight, what with Alito having dissented in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 947 F.2d 682 (3d Cir. 1991) reversed and remanded by Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 (1992), but after the dust settles, he’ll probably be confirmed.
I’m giving 2-1 in favor of his confirmation, for those who are gamblers.
