US: Politics To Trump Geo-Politics Until Further Notice!

Well, because US Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor announced her retirement Friday, and because she was the swing vote on many controversial judicial issues (including abortion, as we recently noted) in a 5-4 split court, American bandwidth will be consumed with the selection of her successor.
