Sandra Day O'Connor Will Leave U.S. Supreme Court

Although everyone expected William Rehnquist to be the first to leave, (he is suffering from cancer) Sanda Day O'Connor will leave the Supreme Court.

Because she is a, perhaps "the" swing justice, the battle to replace her will be fierce.

No justice is recent history has been more likely to vote with the majority. She will probably be replaced with someone more conservative that she is, given that Bush is the President.

Of course, William Brennan, Anthony Kennedy, David Souter and O'Connor were appointed by Republicans, so you never know.
