Chief Judge Wilkins Mentioned for High Court

According to this article in the Greenville News, the White House is considering the Fourth Circuit's Chief Judge as a possible replacement for Justice O'Connor. From my time clerking, I can tell you that Chief Judge Wilkins is a strong leader. Once Rehnquist steps down, Chief Judge Wilkins would be an excellent choice not just for Justice, but Chief Justice of the United States. Chief Judge Wilkins was the first chairman of the United States Sentencing Commission and has considerable expertise in criminal law.
