Ginsberg and Stevens Are Out

Obama could get a couple more justices in there, but they won't tip the balance back to the Left.

Court watchers believe two of the more liberal members of the court, justices John Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, could decide to step aside for reasons of age and health. That would give the president his second and third chance to shape his legacy on the Supreme Court.

Last week, when Obama took the nearly unprecedented step of criticizing the court's opinion in a major campaign finance case during his State of the Union speech, some believed he was showcasing for the American people that presidential elections, and Supreme Court nominations count.

I anticipate months of vigorous debate and exceedingly uninteresting news stories about the Supreme Court nominees.
