O'connor's out

The key swing vote on the Surprime Court, Justice O'connor is retiring. I think this decision is taking a lot of people by surprise. She's been the swing vote on Roe V. Wade so most likely Bush will try and put a stealth Pro Life justice on the bench. Knowing that, the senate democrats will put up on a big fight on this one. This should be a fun one to watch.

Kos has suggestions on what you can do once Bush has a nominee

Whatever happens with the Supreme Court nomination battle that is about to ensue, it's going to happen fast. Here are some things you can do right now:

* If you have a cell phone, sign up for People at the American Way's Mass Immediate Response site. This way, you'll be able to receive text message action items instantly as events break. (If you signed up during the nuclear option fight, you'll need to re-sign up.)

* Also sign up with the Save the Court, another PFAW website devoted specifically to this issue.

* Recruit friends and family members to the cause.

* Write to the President, telling him he should choose a consensus candidate to replace O'Connor.

* Contact your Senators to tell them the same thing.
