Supreme Court Nom: Updated: Announced at 9PM Tonight
UPDTATE: Bush will announce tonight at 9PM, some sources are now saying it ISN'T Clement. We'll see.
From the Washington Post today... The Daily Kos and others are already doing in essence grassroots distributed online research, add and compile who she is. And here is what Wikipedia has on her already. It may or may not be her as the nominee, but we'll know soon enough it sounds.
"The White House has told allies to be prepared for a Supreme Court nomination as early as this afternoon.
Many Republican strategists are anticipating that his choice will be Judge Edith Clement of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, though they stressed that remained uncertain.
"I'm comfortable where we are in the process," the president said shortly after noon, during an appearance with Australian Prime Minister John Howard. "The best way to put it is I'll let you know when I'm ready to tell you who it is."
The White House declined to comment. White House press secretary Scott McClellan would say only: "The president is closer today than he was yesterday on naming a nominee,"
"I've heard nothing official, but it certainly does look like it," said a Republican strategist with close ties to the White House. "The word has gone out that we should be ready today. And the signs are all pointing to Clement."
