• But he is ill. [Baltimore Sun]
• RedState.org rounds up the rumors, including the tidbit that the White House had been moving forward on Chief Justice nominees even prior to Rehnquist's hospitalization, and "Michael Luttig and John Roberts are both getting a thorough review." [RedState.org]
• David Brooks recommends the president nominate someone "like" Michael McConnell. Subtle, Dave. [NYT]
• Orrin Hatch to Dems: "You win the White House, you make the judical nominations." Translation: "Suck on it." [National Review]
