Justice David Souter to retire

Supreme Court Justice David Souter has announced that he will retire in June. Obama gets his first Supreme Court appointee and we will be stuck with his choice for a long, long time.

I am gritting my teeth about this one. We all know he's going to appoint the liberal of liberals, which makes me sick.

Let me throw out a miniscule glimmer of hope. Maybe, just maybe, the person who fills this vacancy will turn out to be a david souter in reverse; that is his/her initial far left liberalism will modify to the point of a "centrist", or evern right of center---once he/she has that all important job or life securiyt. Stranger things have happened in our history.
