      Thanks for the updated list, Ram. Cornyn's apparent
      unpopularity is making me think that the speculation
      that Bush could nominate Cornyn to the Supreme Court
      may be more serious than I'd realized. If Cornyn stays
      in the Senate and faces re-election in 2008 he could
      easily lose if he still has such low approval ratings.
      So Bush might prefer to give a reliable conservative
      like Cornyn a lifetime seat on a court than to see him
      be defeated by a Democrat in Bush's home state. It
      really would be quite shocking to we few liberal
      Texans to see a Democrat win a statewide race, but it
      is still possible.

      If Cornyn did go to the Supreme Court, either to
      replace Rehnquist or another aliing Justice, it would
      mean that our state would not only have Senator
      Hutchison's seat up for re-election next year but also
      a special election for Cornyn's seat. Like a friend of
      mine said to me the other day, that would make our
      normally bland state politics really go wild. We've
      already got a very odd election shaping up in the
      governor's race next year.

        Scalia will find a good friend if Cornyn is actually appointed. And he
        may get there just in time to show his support for Edgar Ray Killen if
        the case goes all the way to the Supreme Court.
