Arlen Specter - O'Connor for Chief Justice
Evidently Senator Arlen Specter (r-Pa) either didn't recieve or didn't understand the letter former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor sent to W a few weeks ago.
Former Justice O'Connor retired from the SCOTUS. That means she hung up her robe and has headed home. Maybe she'll teach a law class. Maybe she'll take up gardening. What she won't do is make rulings from the bench. That's what retirement means.
Senator Specter eluded to how nice it would be to have her as Chief Justice for a year, perhaps.
Somebody please check this guy's hearing aid.
