    I read the same rumors on NR's TKS. I'm not sold on Gonzales, but O'Connor stepping down would be a welcome beginning to change.

    Why on earth would a conservative be unhappy with a conservative pick?

    She changed her colors once she got where she was going.

    I think it's because we are seeing that the conservatives are not what they appear to be. Several so called moderates have now successfully sabotaged any use of the temporary advantage of being in the majority and Congress is spending it's time on trite issues as opposed to making the firm changes so many expected the mto do. What are the big "hot" issues of the day now. A flag burning amendments??????----wow. Social Security reform???---dead horse. Time to check out our GOP candidates to see iff they have any balls before we elect them?

    true, she was one of the "swing" votes on the court.... I'd like to see a conservative replace her....

    Of course, I lost any respect for her after she made the remark about looking to other countries' constitutions for guidance.....

    Good riddance.... definitely!
