O'CONNOR WIELDED POWER AS THE 'SWING VOTE' ON KEY ISSUES

For the last decade of her 24-year Supreme Court career, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor has been the most powerful American woman ever to hold public office -- casting pivotal votes on such hotly contested matters as abortion, states' rights, the death penalty, government involvement with religion, and the rights of suspected terrorists.

OConnor Day Sandra

I am very curious to see who they select to replace her. I hope that they choose to continue down the road of diversity and choose someone that represents a group of people that are not represented already. Another woman would be nice since there isn't another one on the panel. But a judge of latino descent would also fill a void of person representation on the Supreme Court Panel.

I look for another ridiculous philabuster by one side or the other, probably the democrats in this situation because Bush will be the one nominating. So we wont know the end of this for a long time.
