Description

Chief Justice Rehnquist Mulls Retirement The Honolulu Advertiser Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist turns 80 this year and acknowledges he's thinking about retirement. "At age 79 you can't help but think about retirement," he told NBC's Today show in an interview airing Wednesday. "Your life expectancy isn't what it once was. And you've got to think about the possibility of retirement." The widower, who has served on the court since 1972, generally avoids discussing the subject of retirement and rarely gives interviews. In a television interview three years ago he said he would consider retiring rather than the alternative: dying in office. Possible replacements, in a Bush administration, include White House counsel Alberto Gonzales, appeals court judges Emilio Garza and James Harvie Wilkinson III, and California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown, whose nomination to a federal appeals court is stalled in the Senate.
