Supreme Court Speculation

Since Chief Justice William Renquist went into the hospital again this past week, specualation about a possible replacement has picked up again:

Possible Hispanic candidates who have been mentioned include: Chief Judge Danny Boggs, a Cuba native, of the federal appeals court in Cincinnati, Florida Supreme Court Justice Raoul Cantero III and attorney Miguel Estrada. In Bush's first term, Democrats and liberal Latino groups thwarted Estrada's nomination to the appeals court for the District of Columbia.

Hoping Bush would name a Hispanic to the court, the Hispanic National Bar Association delivered a list of eight other candidates to the White House counsel's office in June. On that list: Attorney General Alberto Gonzales; appeals court judges Jose Alberto Cabranes, Julio Fuentes, Emilio Garza and Sonia Sotomayor, district court judges Victor Marrero and Federico Moreno and California Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno.

I wish Gonzales would get the nod, but would'nt he have to recuse himself from most cases that have come and will come before the bench. I thought this is one of the main reasons that he was not nominated by W in the first place. Thoughts?
