Today On TOTN: A Senate Battle For Any Court Pick

Congress may be gone for its Spring break, but that hasn't stopped all of us from speculating on how the next Supreme Court retirement — rumored to be that of Associate Justice John Paul Stevens — will tie the Senate in knots.

Just what lawmakers needed as the midterm elections approach.

In today's Political Junkie segment on NPR's Talk of the Nation, we'll have Amy Howe, the editor of SCOTUSblog, on the show to talk about the Stevens rumors and who's on the short list to succeed him.

Plus: the latest travails of RNC chair Michael Steele ... Giuliani chooses a candidate in the Florida Senate race ... Blagojevich gets voted off the "Celebrity Apprentice" island ... Va. Gov. McDonnell wants to renew "Confederate History Month" ... and the latest polls.

Last week's segment — about the lack of civility in Congress with special guest Lou Frey, the former GOP House member from Florida — can be heard here.

Join host Neal Conan and me every Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET for the Junkie segment on TOTN, where you can often, but not always, find interesting conversation, useless trivia questions and sparkling jokes. And you can win a Political Junkie T-shirt!

If your local NPR station doesn't carry TOTN, you can always hear the program on the Web or on HD Radio. And if you are a subscriber to XM/Sirius radio, you can find the show there as well (siriusly).
