WASHINGTON - President Obama may get liberal Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court, but conservative swing-voter Anthony Kennedy says he's not going anywhere anytime soon.

Justice Kennedy, who turns 74 this month, has told relatives and friends he plans to stay on the high court for at least three more years - through the end of Obama's first term, sources said.

I think he may stay on even longer.

Swing voters feel a sense of power and importance... both sides want them and I would be surprised if he was willing to give up the power.

Look what being in that position does to people like Jeffords, McCain, Lieberman, Nelson, Stupak, Snowe, etc.

Kennedy knows that he now is the one to watch.

Poll results seem about right: “not conservative enough” at 80%, with folks liking the 5-4 split in distant second, but still outpacing “not liberal enough” by almost four to one.

Pray for the health of all the Supremes.

We don’t want any of the majority five to go for sure, but we also don’t want any of the most liberal replaced with younger leftists who will last for decades.

I would like to have a chance to help the 1% “not sure” to unpack their feelings a little.

through the end of Obama's first term

...some words I doubt we'll hear used much together are "Obama" and "second term". I don't think he'll even try.

Republicans seem hell bent of voting to confirm this POS. She is no more qualified to be a SC Justice than Obama is to be pres__ent.

If nothing else, he’s sticking to the tradition of waiting for the party that nominated you before you retire. That should have in 2013. Granted, if Hillary rides in on her white horse (totally opposite of Lady Godiva) and manages to win the White House in 2012, I doubt Kennedy would hand on for four more years if he’s already thinking retirement now.

The ‘fix’ is in. In less than a half hour, not liberal enough moved from 4% to 41%.

Indeed. I noticed the shift. It’s being unFReeped.
