A Nice Thought 

But it's never going to happen.

Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has stated his opinion that Pres. Bush should request retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor to rescind her retirement, and possibly appoint her to the Chief Justice position.
Asking her to stay on, at least until January, gives the president a bit more time to think this process through, rather than trying to jam decisions," Dodd told Fox News Sunday. O'Connor cited her age and a need to spend more time with her family in her retirement statement, but "she's a patriot who would do what her country needed," Schumer told The Associated Press.

It would be nice, and a whole lot more palatable than any of the more likely nominees, but it's just not going to happen.
