The Electric Commentary

Tuesday, July 19, 2005


It appears that Bush will nominate Edith Clement of the 5th Circuit.

But I've screwed up too many stories on Supreme Court Justices lately to believe anything until I actually see it happen.


  • For the record, the stress is on the first syllable. Pronounce it CLE-ment, not cle-MENT. I don't want another round of the senate confirmation pronunciation wars like we had over whether Clarence Thomas committed sexual HARRIS-ment or her-ASS-ment.

    From what I know about Clement, I think she's about as good a judge as we could possibly get from Bush. That's not saying much, but it's saying something.
