SCOTUS nominee to be announced tonight at 9P ET

Fifth Circuit Judge Edith Clement
The White House is asking for television time tonight at 9P ET to announce and introduce to the nation his choice for the Supreme Court seat being vacated by retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Current scuttlebutt is that the choice will be Fifth Circut Judge Edith Clement from New Orleans.

Clement is viewed as more moderate than many conservatives would like, perhaps to avoid an almost inevitable partisan fight in the US Senate over her confirmation. But we'll have to see.

Let the games begin.
