Predictions for 2006

My top ten predictions for 2006 can be found here. The prediction that is relevant to judicial issues is number three.

3. Samuel Alito will be confirmed to the Supreme Court, but the hearings will be much more vicious than expected. Another Supreme Court vacancy will arise. The President will once again fail to nominate Judge Michael Luttig or Judge Edith Jones, instead appointing Judge Karen Williams of the Fourth Circuit. The Senate hearings will be even more partisan and brutal than those for Alito.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
