Another election thought - the Supes

Obama kind of neutralized his appointment of liberal humanist Sotomayor by also naming his conservative constitutionalist professor Kagan.

It is not unlikely that whoever is elected with be appointing as many as FOUR justices.

Ginzburg is 79.
Reagan's two guys Scalia and Kennedy are 76
Breyer is 74

Lately, justices have retired rather than die in office, and there is less tolerance on the bench for a justice who can no longer handle the work load and pressure.
