    Just trying to see who got left out of the last short-list and who might be picked to replace Justice Stevens when he retires.

    He might pick Clinton just to get rid of her from the next election.

    Wood, maybe even Granholm (it was rumoured she would be a pick).

    I'm going with Sarah Palin. Someone else has mentioned her already.

    So she has no legal training - so what? I LIKE her. She reminds me of the woman who lives next door to me - a down-to-earth person who screams at her husband (just like every wife, right?) and takes out the garbage every evening.

    Sarah is a no-nonsense woman with guts! I like that in a woman. I like it more in a United States Supreme Court justice. Can you imagine Sarah, pondering her decision in a case involving complicated, anti-trust legislation or a tricky, Constitutional law question? Can't you just see her in there, addressing the judges who are disagreeing with her?

    "Aw, come on now, jusitices! You know this just isn't right. Why, we would never do it that way up Wasilla way, doncha know? So THERE. I'm not budging! We should ALL agree right now to deny sertio-rary (is that how you say it?) to this case, you BETCHA!" (Takes glasses off and bats eyes at the other justices.)

    Yes, sir! I can see it now.
