Another SCOTUS Friday Surprise?

Erick-Woods Erickson informs us that the always-busy Robert Novak is now reporting that Rehnquist will indeed retire today, when Bush returns from the G8 meeting this afternoon...Erickson has also been reporting the rumors that Justice Stevens is on the way out, too (holy cow, can you imagine how the Kossacks are quaking?). Erickson's conclusion:
If O'Connor is gone and Rehnquist is gone, it makes sense for Stevens to go too as it would give the Democrats a much better rallying cry to prevent the President from stocking the Supreme Court with conservatives. Say hello to Justice Gonzales.
