There's another pleasant thought: Obama should have the opportunity to appoint a good number of justices in his second term!

I'd still like to see Feingold on that bench.

Let's see, the four oldest are:

Ginsburg (79)
Scalia (76)
Kennedy (76)
Breyer (74)

I know Ginsburg is ready to retire. I presume Scalia will either die in the saddle or suddenly leave for no good reason. But most likely he will stay until there's another chance for a Republican president. In short, unless one of the younger Republicans decides to retire early, I don't see how Obama can change the makeup of the current court. Down the road, yes, since his appointees are young, but I doubt there will be any changes during his term in office.

Feingold, Kagan, Sotomayor... what a legacy Obama could leave.

Clarence Thomas is only 65 or 66, but he doesn't look like one of those people who's still going to work at age 80. Maybe that's the opening.

Intrade used to be my least favorite Forum topic and now it's my most favorite of all. Meade has left a nice legacy too.

Let's run this topic another couple months, at least.

Blatant racism. You have to laugh, don't you? Snoqueen is so exquisitely attractive when she's slavering over a black man dying young.

"One of those people".
Won't be working.

How repulsive when liberals' masks of sanctimony slip and their covert racism shows.

All one can do is laugh.

Pretty good imitation Meade. But you are bullying Sno.

And nowadays the bully card trumps the race card.

So you lose.

BULLY!!!!!!

Flattered, bdog, but I'm no bully. You're right though that snoqueen is both racist and a bully.

Good catch.

The opposite of whatever Nate Silver claims it is.

Oh, come on. Clarence Thomas barely sits up. He hears Court arguments almost lying down in his chair. Couch-potatohood is not a sign of good health. I wish he looked better -- it's not fun to have your body become an encumbrance. He might be totally contrarian and write odious opinions, but he's a human being and nobody decent wishes ill health on another person.
