Why did the impending announcement of O'Connor's replacement on the Supreme Court by President Bush go from: after his return from his trip to Europe on July 8th ...
"Press secretary Scott McClellan said later that Bush won't announce his choice until he returns from a four-day trip to Europe on July 8."

to: ... Bush is now going to "home in on a handful" of prospective nominees [possibly including pro-abort Bush-buddy Alberto Gonzales] over the next few weeks" ???
...White House press secretary Scott McClellan said. He said Bush would "home in on a handful" of prospective nominees over the next few weeks.

Could it be that Bush, Inc. wants to be able to focus on ONE major, administration-defining issue at a time - now that the US Senate has just passed CAFTA late on Thursday night, June 30, right before the July 4th long-weekend, and the day before Sandra O'Connor announced her resignation, by a vote of 54 - 45, the US House is set to take it up anytime after they return from the July 4th recess, on Monday, July 11 ?
Other than those tuned into the HUGE significance of CAFTA, which can be thought of as NAFTA-plus, and a predecessor to the FTAA, encompassing all of the Western Hemisphere (except, for now, Cuba), many Americans don't realize the HUGE impact of emplacing another building block for hemispheric regional government (in the model of the European Union, whose proposed Constitution voters in France and Holland recently rejected, thank the Lord !), as a stepping-stone to global, one-world government - the New World Order ! (check out the back of the one-dollar bill in your wallet; see the words Novus Ordo Seclorum at the base of the unfinished Tower of Babel-like pyramid that is part of the Great Seal of the United States).
One reason many Americans do not understand the serious, sovereignty-stealing aspect of the CAFTA story, is because the CAFTA story is being actively suppressed by the CFR-controlled dominant media, from which newspapers all across the nation take their reporting cues:
For example, the local daily paper in the capital of South Carolina, The State, is South Carolina's largest newspaper. Look below at the miniscule, two-sentence coverage, at the end, the tenth item in a list of "NATIONAL BUSINESS BRIEFS" that appeared in The State on Friday, July 1, the day after the CAFTA vote in the US Senate:
Make no mistake about it, CAFTA is immensely critical to the drive toward world government envisioned by the Illuminati Establishment elites to whom Skull and Bones secret society member President George W. Bush owes his presidency and to whom he gives allegiance in the pursuit of policy. He serves the Illuminati; he uses the foolish Christian (so-called) 'right.'
One guess is that Bush, Inc. wants more time to pressure members of Congress in the US House to vote to pass the unconstitutional CAFTA legislation (treaty) - and that's why the O'Connor replacement announcement has been put off until"the next few weeks."

NATIONAL BUSINESS BRIEFS
Boeing names McNerney as new CEO
The aerospace company named 3M Co. chief executive W. James McNerney Jr., 55, as its new CEO, turning to an outsider to help it recover from recent ethical lapses and lead its high-stakes bid to regain the top spot in commercial airplane sales. Shares jumped $4.29 to a four-year high of $65.96.
Ebbers to forfeit assets in settlement
Former WorldCom boss Bernard Ebbers will give up nearly everything he owns including his Mississippi home and his stake in a golf course in a settlement with angry investors in the fraud-toppled company. He faces sentencing July 13 for his role in the WorldCom debacle.
1. Mack succeeding Purcell at Morgan Stanley
John Mack returned to Morgan Stanley as its chairman and chief executive, bringing the stability of a Wall Street veteran to an embattled firm and promising to seek the return of top employees who left the company under former chairman and chief executive Phil Purcell.
2. Income growth, spending slow in May
Personal income growth slowed sharply in May and people’s spending didn’t increase at all, but analysts viewed the weakness as temporary and not a signal of a serious slowdown of the economy.
3. Oil prices continue slide
Oil prices fell by more than $1 a barrel, bringing the decline in crude futures to more than $4 a barrel over the past three days.
4. United flight attendants claim right to strike
The union representing flight attendants at UAL Corp.’s United Airlines said they have the right to strike, now that the airline altered their contract without their consent. UAL disagreed.
5. CNOOC: Unocal bid will move forward
CNOOC Ltd. will press ahead with its takeover bid for Unocal despite a planned shareholder vote on a competing offer by Chevron and Unocal’s recommendation that it should be accepted, the Chinese company’s chairman said.
6. Maytag says new bid causes ripples
Household appliance maker Maytag said it was notified by Triton Acquisition Holding Co. that Maytag’s talks with rival suitors give Triton the right to terminate their merger agreement and collect a $40 million termination fee.
7. ConAgra Foods’ earnings decline
ConAgra, a top U.S. food producer with brands such as Butterball and Chef Boyardee, said fourth-quarter earnings declined 40 percent, primarily due to lower profit from its packaged meats. Shares rose 6 cents to $23.16.
8. AT&T shareholders approve SBC deal
AT&T shareholders approved the company’s $16 billion acquisition by SBC Communications that would create one of the world’s largest phone companies. SBC’s stock at $23.75 a share, down 19 cents, so the deal now values AT&T’s stock at about $19.80 per share. That’s about 4 percent higher than AT&T’s closing price, $19.04.
9. Bush names Glassman acting SEC chair
The president named Securities and Exchange Commissioner Cynthia Glassman as acting SEC chairman. SEC chairman William Donaldson stepped down Thursday. The Senate has yet to approve Rep. Christopher Cox, R-Calif., Bush’s choice to replace Donaldson.

The Senate on Thursday endorsed a free trade agreement with six Latin American nations, handing a major win to President Bush. The 54-45 vote sets the stage for a final battle in the House, where the agreement’s many critics have vowed to defeat it.
