"I'm glad the President doesn't bow down to your NOW-like quota system and considers individuals of all aspects.."

Since when does it take a quota system to nominate a woman? If you want to talk about quotas..lets talk about how there are more women then men in America.

Women are not subject to "quotas" like minorities. They are part of the mainstream.

Were have you been for the past 30 plus years?

Couldn't agree more. Your point is well taken.

Only problem I have is when people talk about the O'Connor seat and that the replacement must be a woman. That is silly logic.

The other sad factor is the Senate confirmation process that has degenerated so much that it may have scared many woman from being considered. Don't know this to be a fact, but seems very plausible, and there have been stories in the press.

Saying a nominee MUST be a woman is a quota.

If Bush nominates a proper nominee, male or female, he has my support.
