  • Guess that means Specter lost another one. He wanted someone "not associated with the law."

    Of the 3 I'd lean towards Wood simply because there's enough Ivy League creeping around Washington already. No need to add more.

  • I'm thinking that no matter who Obama picks, it's not gonna matter. Even tho Souter was put in there by Bush 1, he voted liberally nearly 100% of the time. Obama is of course only going to appoint a liberal, so I don't think it'll make much difference. Do I wish he'd pick someone with morals and values, yes...but I know that won't happen.

  • I think it's of little consequence:

    A liberal judge will be replaced by a liberal judge, and the overall voting of the supreme court will remain the same.
