As Soon As Victory Is Announced

My wife predicts Judge Rehnquist will step down. Bush will find the most Conservative, anti-abortion judge/family crony to replace him.

William H. Rehnquist, Chief Justice of the United States, was born in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin, October 1, 1924. He married Natalie Cornell, now deceased, and has three
children— James, Janet, and Nancy. From 1943–1946 he served in the U.S. Army Air
Forces. He received a B.A., M.A., and LL.B. from Stanford University and an M.A. from
Harvard University. He served as a law clerk for Justice Robert H. Jackson of the Supreme
Court of the United States during the 1951 and 1952 Terms, and practiced law in Phoenix,
Arizona from 1953–1969. He served as Assistant Attorney General, Office of Legal Counsel
from 1969–1971. President Nixon nominated him to the Supreme Court, and he took his
seat as an Associate Justice on January 7, 1972. Nominated as Chief Justice by President
Reagan, he assumed that office on September 26, 1986.
