It's not Clement [UPDATE: It's John Roberts]
So says ABC, "confirmed" by NBC's David Gregory. If it's Gonzalez, Bush is at war with conservatives, if he picks Edith Jones, it's pretty much the worst possible for Democrats--it will mean Bush is asking for a war, and thinks our side will lose. We probably will. Tradesports puts Edith Jones at about 2:1 90 minutes before the announcement.

[UPDATE: Bush is nominating John Roberts. Not much of a track record as a judge, but authored losing briefs on the side of abortion protestors and the side of clergy prayer at graduation. TalkLeft has more including Senator Reid's initial response: essentially "we'll see."]
