Bush to nominate 3rd Circuit Judge Samuel Alito to SCOTUS

Fox (among others) is reporting that President Bush will nominate 3rd Circuit Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court today. By default, he's got a characteristic that alleviates my concern over Harriet Miers: he's got experience. The next several days will show whether the White House has learned to properly vet a candidate again and the blogosphere will go over the guy's past rulings, I'm sure.

What also remains to be seen is whether the Senate Republicans will begin to act as though they have a majority there and take care of the coming filibuster like they should have months ago. We shall wee.
