SCOTUS: Rehnquist Passes - Roberts Confirmation to Go Forward

Posted by Tim Tagaris

Not much in terms of links as the information is breaking on television right now, but for those of you online only, here is what we know.

William Rehnquist has passed away.

Confirmation hearings will go forward for John Roberts on Tuesday (via Fox News)

The Republican spin is already that Roberts was the moderate choice and now the president has the ability to pick a "strict contstructionist." (Again via Fox News)

Unfortunately, only Fox is live and has Hannity and Colmes in the studio at 12:30 on a Saturday night, which is nice.
