Rebunk's Nostradamus?

Once upon a time in a far away land, Rebunk's founding father quite seriously made the following prediction with words to the effect, "during this presidency, you will see the first Latino or Hispanic appointed to the United States Supreme Court."

It appears our friend Derek was a bit ahead of his time, as admittedly he told me this during the summer of 1993 at the St. Paul's School Advanced Studies Program, during the time President Clinton was just getting his feet wet. But with Alberto Gonzalez waiting in the wings today as the possible nominee to replace Sandra Day O'Connor, I have to believe our fair-minded liberal is scratching his head and saying,"Who woulda thunk it?" My darkhorse prediction for the nomination: Ken Starr.

Looks like I'll have to keep this little award in the closet, for now.

Although I want to be the first to toss Emilio Garza's name out there as well. More conservative than Gonzales, from the 5th Circuit, would fulfill the Hispanic history niche. Priscilla Owen, Edith Brown Clement, and Edith Hollan Jones might make sense too.

I get dibs on Gonzales, though, as per the body of the post. (Written from rainy London after the Open. very sunburned)

Orrin Hatch would be good. I am betting on Gonzalez though.
