Description

President George W. Bush is preparing for what could be his first Supreme Court vacancy. With the High Court term due to end Monday and 80-year-old Chief Justice William Rehnquist battling cancer, speculation is rife he'll announce his retirement. If he does, spokesman Scott McClellan said the president will be ready. He said officials have "prepared for that scenario" -- as any White House would. Last week, Senate Democrats sent a letter to Bush urging him to choose a "consensus" nominee for any Supreme Court vacancy. McClellan said Bush is prepared to hear the views of all senators -- but only after an opening actually occurs.
