Bush, O'Connor lead tributes to Rehnquist

Of all the statements made about Chief Justice William Hubbs Rehnquist during his funeral at St. Matthews Cathedral in Washington on Wednesday, the most fitting may have been the casket in which he was buried. It was crafted of unvarnished knotty pine, and it spoke volumes about Rehnquists personality and style: Austere. Dignified. Commanding. President Bush and Justice Sandra Day OConnor led the nations farewell to the 16th chief justice, who was celebrated not only as a top jurist but also as a father, grandfather and close friend.
