BUSH CAN AVOID CONFIRMATION BATTLE WITH CONSENSUS COURT NOMINEE, SHERMAN SAYS

Congressman Brad Sherman on Friday issued a statement on the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and the process for selecting a replacement:

"Justice O'Connor has been a symbol of moderation on the Supreme Court. President Bush should replace her with someone who, like Justice O'Connor, is in the mainstream not the extreme.

"He should reject pressure from those in the right-wing fringe of his own party who want an activist justice to turn back the clock on landmark rulings that protect individual rights and civil liberties.

"In the best interest of the court and the country, the president should pick a consensus nominee and avoid a drawn-out confirmation battle in the Senate."
