Could Sandra Day O'Connor fill Antonin Scalia's Supreme Court vacancy?
It's been more than a decade since Sandra Day O'Connor's retirement from the Supreme Court, but there's talk the 85-year-old former justice could fill the void left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
An op-ed in The Baltimore Sun laid out the case for appointing O'Connor, including her age and political history:
"Republican leaders routinely tout President Reagan as an icon; a vote against confirming Justice O'Connor would be an admission that the patron saint of the modern Republican Party wasn't infallible."

The conservative-leaning O'Connor -- the first female Supreme Court justice -- was nominated to the court by Ronald Reagan in 1981. Though that doesn't mean she falls fully in line with modern Republicans.
