SCOTUS nominee to be announced

President Bush says he'll announce his nominee to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor tonight at 8 central. I'll comment more later, but I will say I'm looking forward to the reaction.

The frontrunner seems to be Judge Edith Clement of the 5th Circut Appeals Court. (click for a GoogleNews search)

For now, the FoxNews story is here.

UPDATE: Eric Lindholm at VikingPundit has two links and one indicator saying it will be Clement. We'll see...
UPDATE 2: WaPo's take on the announcement AND The Hill's
