Rehnquist retirement talk

It's been rumored that William Rehnquist, the current chief justice, will announce his retirement tomorrow. If that's the case, I'll be surprised. I do not expect a Rehnquist retirement announcement tomorrow.

Considering what happened in London earlier today, the ongoing G8 summit, and Sandra's retirement announcement last Friday, I can't see why a Rehnquist retirement announcement makes much sense right now.

If his health is a concern, why would he wait so long before making an announcement? There was widespread speculation he'd announce on the last day of the term.

Didn't happen.

So, we will see.
