Breath easy. The White House is broadcasting that we won’t see a Supreme Court nomination today.
-The White House appears to be moving carefully on this, emphasizing today the consultations with over 80 senators.
-Latest names in this dispatch: Gonzales, Thompson, Miers, Batchelder, Karen Williams, Michigan Supreme Court Justice Maura Corrigan, and Washington attorney Maureen Mahoney. Who’s to say how much of this is misdirection and how much is serious consideration?
