A Major Recess Appointment
Some analysts believe President Bush could make as many as three Supreme Court appointments if he wins a second term. But could he make one if he loses?The revelation this week that Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist has been hospitalized for cancer treatment raises one more intriguing prospect in an election season already awash in intriguing prospects.
If Bush fails to win re-election, he may yet be presented with a vacancy to fill on the high court - and a tempting chance to make history before leaving office by using his authority to make recess-appointments.
Nomination Nation doubts that Bush would make a recess appointment. However, if you have reason to believe otherwise, please email Pozinski or Senator Spectator.
