O'Connor retiring



This morning, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor announced that she would be stepping down as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. (Text of retirement announcement here.) Hat tip to Bill Kristol, who made this call last week.

For the Wall Street Journal's take, see here; for the Washington Post's, see here. For extensive discussion of possible nominees, see The Supreme Court Nomination Blog (a sister site to SCOTUSBlog) and the Supreme Court Short List page from our own Jonathan Wilson.

UPDATE: First of all, Jonathan's post beat mine up (though I guess I'd started mine 8 minutes earlier) -- if these look funny. More links (courtesy of the tireless Howard Bashman): the Detroit Free Press on O'Connor's voting record, and her bio.
