25. But the SCOTUS pick is much more high-profile news. Not sure what you're point is?
Edited on Tue May-26-09 08:35 AM by ClarkUSA
It is possible for two news items to share the same day. This has always been considered the best week to announce the pick because Congress is home for the week on Memorial Day break.
