WHITE HOUSE (AP) - Top senators suggested a dozen or so names to President Bush this morning at a meeting on his next Supreme Court pick. And though the president didn't say if any of the names were on his own list -- he did appear to reject the idea of a delay in naming a replacement for retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter has suggested the president wait until more is known about John Roberts, his nominee for chief justice. The committee is supposed to vote tomorrow on the Roberts nomination, with confirmation by the full Senate expected soon after. Asked what Bush thought of his call for a delay, Specter said "the body language was not very positive."
Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy says the wrong pick could unleash a big partisan battle. He says he urged Bush to be "a uniter, not a divider."
