Quote of the Day - Paradoxically though it may seem, it is none the less true that life imitates art far more than art imitates life.
Star of small and big screen, former Senator Fred Dalton Thompson will guide President Bush's Supreme Court nomination through Congress.
As a former member of the Judiciary Committee, Thompson stands in a unique position as a former insider to ensure the nominee has a head start instead of a disaster. Once we know who the judicial nomination will be, Thompson will be the man behind the scenes.
Let's just hope Senator Thompson doesn't look to a co-worker first. Really, though, while everyone's prognosticating, the list has been short since 2001, and really hasn't changed much.
All we have to do now is wait, and hope the process is civil and without filibuster. As Senator Thompson said as Admiral Josh Painter in the The Hunt For Red October, "This business will get out of control! It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it!"
Will life imitate art?
