Cold blooded political Calculus at a Time of Nation Tragedy

I kind of hate myself for doing this, but here it goes:

Chief Justice William Rhenquist has died. This leaves Bush with two vacancies to fill. So, what happens to Roberts, who some suspected might be positioned to succeed Rhenquist as Chief Justice, and is Bush going to have any chance of shoving two right-wing activists onto the bench at a time when his approval ratings are sinking even lower?

(Ok, so not cold blooded or calculating at all. That was the plan when I was writing the title, but after that, I didn’t have much energy for anything but what you see above).
