No, no -- look over *there*!!

The Rove business must be starting to make the Bushies hot under the collar, because they've moved up the deadline for announcing their Supreme Court nominee until 9:00 tonight (from "end of the month"). Guess we're off to the races tomorrow!

There is much speculation about Edith Brown being the pick, apparently because she has so few written opinions to be taken to task over. Along those lines, Armando at dailyKos has a useful post on what do you ask a blank slate? (More on Brown is available here or here.) [Of course, the blank slate thing holds for Roberts too.]

Update: White House essentially admits announcing early because of the Rove mess.

Update 2: Here's evidence that it largely worked.
