I don't know why, but yesterday afternoon when I was thinking about who the President would nominate, Maureen Mahoney popped into my head. Thus, that's my prediction, which is based entirely on intution. Don't trust it, don't bet on it, don't believe it. But that's my prediction.
UPDATE: The buzz over Alito is getting louder. Doug Berman has his own thoughts, and lots of links, here.
