Activists Arm for Supreme Court Battle

"Amid speculation that ailing Rehnquist may retire, Republican groups plan to spend more than $20 million promoting a successor," the Wall Street Journal's Washington Wire reports. "Ralph Neas of People for the American Way says liberal activists 'can outdo them' in advocacy."

"Appeals-court judge Wilkinson of Richmond, Va., becomes bigger target of the left for siding with White House over indefinite detention of enemy combatants. Roberts, of the Washington, D.C., appeals court, is seen as tougher for Democrats to challenge. Ex-clerks are somber after recent reunion with Rehnquist, although he said nothing about his plans."
