NPR has learned that Supreme Court Justice David Souter is planning to retire at the end of the court's current term.

I am betting Elena...
I wonder what Marxist ACLU attorney will be appointed to replace him.
Pretty pathetic of Souter that a republican appointed him, and he waits until a radical leftist democrat is in office before he retires.
Souter was Bush 41’s biggest mistake!
That won't happen, but at least if there are any republican senators with any gonads left, they can expose the Obama nominee for what s/he/it is.
Souter and Ginsburg are pretty much left wing.. Replacing them will make no difference in fact, you can’t do much worse..in finding someone to replace them...
He will have to appoint a Hispanic.
We all better start praying for the good health of Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, and Alito.
That's the rumor alright.
The Elder Bush was when all is said and done a loser. He raises taxes... doesn’t finish what he started in Mid East and appoints this jerk....
Aw shucks. Maybe Obama can nominate Al Franken or Chris Dodd. Not 100% convinced it wouldn’t be an improvement.
David Souter is and always has been, borderline psychotic. The man's history speaks for itself-- he is psychiatrically unfit and always has been. He is probably retiring now because the voices in his head, from leading denizens of the planet Xenon, are telling him to.
Gang of 14 doesn’t matter anymore since the democrats will soon have 60 votes and rats don’t vote against rat nominations.
How will they notice the difference?
I miss the old Peggy Noonan.
“Most here seem to implicity agree Obama will not be appointing a white male.”
I’m all for appointing women and minorities, provided they be well qualified and carry out their duties as proscribed in the Constitution. I have a hard time imagining Obama appointing someone of that disposition.
If this happens I think there should, and will be a massive revolt. At least I would hope so. If that wouldn't trigger outrage on a massive level, our country really is lost.
So, who’s got a list of imams with law degrees?
Former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., urged a room full of Republican attorneys today to fight President Obama's judicial nominees -- but to stop short of the filibuster.
Speaking at a Republican National Lawyers Association conference at the National Press Club, Santorum insisted to a skeptical audience that filibustering judicial nominees would be counterproductive. Two questioners wondered why Republicans should show restraint after Democrats blocked several of President Bush's nominees. "We will lose every single filibuster attempt, even if it's the worst judge in the world. We don't have the votes," Santorum rejoined....
Dear Lord, have mercy on us.
Is Ginsburg next?
