140 Year Old Alte Kacher John Paul Stevens May Be Stepping Down

Knee-jerk arch-liberal, statist, and judicial radical on every single issue.

More reports are confirming the Obama administration is preparing for a potential Supreme Court vacancy in the next few months. Reports surfaced weeks ago that pro-abortion Justice John Paul Stevens was considering retiring and today, CNN said more recent reports indicate that as well.

CNN indicates the White house has begun "quiet preparations" for a high court vacant but cautions that top Obama officials have not named any names of potential Supreme Court retirements.

The latest session of the Supreme Court ends in June and the most likely scenario is that one of the justices would announce a retirement this Spring or Summer so a newly-confirmed replacement can join the court when its next term begins in October.

...

Most of the speculation about potential retirement surrounds Stevens, one of the five members of the court's current pro-abortion majority.

Stevens is 90-years-old and speculation reached enormous heights that he would retire when news surfaced that he had hired just one law clerk for the October 2010 term. Retiring judges usually have one clerk while sitting Supreme Court members have four.

The only good thing is that you can't do much worse than Stevens -- except put in a much younger man. Or better yet a woman, as they live longer.

Unfortunately this means that while Obama isn't gaining ground in the Court -- not trading out conservatives for liberals -- he's replacing his oldsters with (relative) youngsters who will screw up the country for years to come.
