Default Re: Rehnquist Dies

So what's the deal with Bush snubbing all of the other senior conservative judges on the court and nominating Roberts now to take over Rehnquist's chief justice spot instead of using himn to replace Sandra Day O'Connor?
I don't understand this move. Is Bush just trying to alienate his conservative base even further? Why not nominate Scalia for the chief justice post? After all, they have a lot in common, at least intellectually.... :roll:
