Bush Makes Third Nomination to High Court

President Bush nominates Samuel Alito to fill retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's seat on the United States Supreme Court. Alito has served 15 years on the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. And he has a track record on that court that so far seems to please conservatives.

Mara Liasson, NPR political correspondent

Kate Coscarelli, legal reporter for the Newark Star Ledger

Timothy Lewis, an attorney with Schrader, Harrison, Segal and Lewis; served on Third Circuit Court of Appeals with Samuel Alito for seven years
