White House Expects a Double Play

According to Matt DrudgePresident Bush has told his staff to plan for two imminent vacancies on the Supreme Court. Speculation is that both Chief Justice Rehnquist and Justice Sandra Day O'Connor will step down at the end of the current Court term. Losing Rehnquist would be a blow, although his effectiveness has been essentially eliminated due to his health issues of late. Seeing O'Connor head home to Arizona, however, would be more than welcome.
