Bush has thrown the gauntlet

President Bush plans to renominate 20 candidates for federal judgeships who have been unable to win confirmation in the Senate, the White House said today, in a signal that the president is ready for a showdown early next year.

Another example that Dubya says what he means and means what he says. He stated emphatically that he was going to spend his political capital earned in the election and I can't think of a better place to spend it than putting qualified jurists in the senior federal courts.

Texas Supreme Court Justice Priscilla Owen, the Monk's darling, will be re-nominated for the Court of Appeals of the Fifth Circuit.
