Hopefully a woman at least!!
Well, I was surprised - I'd figured that she/GWB didn't really care about all the criticism. But I did wonder how she was gonna do it - with no experience and all.
The only bad thing about this is that I wonder too who will be next for nomination - It will either be another moderate or someone who panders to the far right. If it is the latter, that would trouble me! We'll have to see...
I worry about it being a woman who is ultra-conservative, because she would really have to be a hard-liner to be accepted by the far right.
Anyway, as far as these hearings and all - the nominees don't really seem to answer anything they are asked anyway. I had to turn off the J. Roberts hearings, not because I necessarily disagreed with him, but because I couldn't stand all the circumlocution!
