Chief Justice Thomas
The new Republicans like making political statements with Judicial appointments. Reagan made one by promising, and then appointing, a woman Justice to the Supreme Court (Justice Sandra Day O'Connor). George H.W. Bush did so by elevating to the Court an African American (Justice Clarence Thomas really is one).
So, what's Dubya going to do, now that it's not going to be a Hispanic on the court? I bet it's going to be an African American Chief Justice. Adn who better than Thomas for that?
The only thing that could possibly go against him? Well, he is considered a clone of Scalia - and we all know how that word figures with conservatives ;).
