Bush narrows Supreme Court list (White House counsel Harriet Miers)
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush, nearing the end of his search for a successor to retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, has whittled his list to a handful of candidates and could announce his decision by week's end.

---cut---

Legal analysts monitoring the selection process, however, say the list has been narrowed to less than 10 candidates, mostly federal appellate judges and a few individuals who have never worn a judicial robe.

Often mentioned are federal appellate judges Alice Batchelder, J. Michael Luttig, Edith Jones, J. Harvie Wilkinson, Priscilla Owen, Samuel Alito, Karen Williams and Michael McConnell.

---cut---

Miers is leading the White House effort to help Bush choose a nominee to the Supreme Court, so naming her would follow a move Bush made in 2000 when he tapped the man leading his search committee for a running mate -- Dick Cheney.

3. He's considering people who've never been judges?
Oh man, even the Republicans should be filibustering THAT one!

It was bad enough when he picked a partisan hack who'd only been a judge three years. But someone who'd NEVER been a judge? That's fucking nuts!

My bet: Priscilla Owen.
