Supreme Court Justice "Joy" Clement?

Word on the street is that Bush will announce his nomination to the SCOTUS either today or tomorrow and that the nomination is one Edith Brown Clement, currently a judge on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Considering how frequently wrong these rumors have been in the past few weeks, I am a bit skeptical. But if she's the one, many seem to think she is a reliable conservative and "strict constructionist," although many others worry her record is a little too thin to be sure.

One good sign from my perspective is that the People for the "un"American Way seem to really hate her.

I suggest visiting Bench Memos to stay up to date on all SCOTUS nomination rumors.

***UPDATE*** of course we all now know that word on the street was indeed wrong...Judge Roberts is the nominee.
