O'Conner off the Supreme Court and Gonzales on?

William Kristol is engaging in what he calls "somewhat well-informed speculation" that:
  • Within a week, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor--not Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist--will resign, and
  • The president's nominee to replace O'Connor will be Attorney General Alberto Gonzales .
O'Connor, while a Republican nominee, has not been nearly as consistently conservative as Rehnquist.

If Gonzales is nominated, expect to hear much more from the Democrats about the Geneva Convention and filibusters.
