It would seem God has weighed in on the Supreme Court debate.

Just found out that William Rehnquist has died. Sad news for America, because I always felt he did an excellent job navigating the judicial minefield that both parties had created by asking the courts to support their political agendas. A great man. May God give you rest and peace.

The drama of picking his replacement will now begin. There are some big shoes to fill:

Saturday night, Ruth Wedgwood, a constitutional lawyer and close friend of Rehnquist, said, "He was an interesting man. He had an interesting life. Over time, I think he became a much more unifying figure in the court."

His death, she said, puts a "great burden" on the Senate,which will be responsible for confirming a replacement.
