Bush to meet with Senate leaders to discuss court vacancy

President Bush is sitting down to breakfast Tuesday with key Senate leaders from both parties to talk about filling the vacancy on the Supreme Court a highly unusual gesture from this president. Why is he doing it? Though controlled by Republicans, the Senate has been no friend to Bush. He appears to be going to extraordinary lengths to ensure it doesnt block one of the most important decisions of his presidency, the selection of a successor to Justice Sandra Day OConnor, who has announced her retirement.
