Justice O'Connor Does Shakespeare

Big news of the day is that Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is stepping down. The only reason it's mentioned here, though, is that fellow justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is quoted referring to O'Connor's surprise appearance in a 1996 production of Henry V. In particular, the quote "Hap'ly, a woman's voice may do some good" is what makes it relevant :).

Anybody think she'll be replaced by another woman? Another woman who's done Shakespeare?

Here's a loaded question - if Bush ever did Shakespeare, what role do you think would have suited him best?

With his command of the English language, I'd have to say Dogberry!

Well there's certainly no shortage of places on the net where people have written him down an ass, that's for sure. :)
