    Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens retiring

    Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens retiring - Yahoo! News

    AP 11:30 am-Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, the court's oldest member and leader of its liberal bloc, is retiring. President Barack Obama now has his second high court opening to fill.

    Stevens said Friday he will step down when the court finishes its work for the summer in late June or early July. He said he hopes his successor is confirmed "well in advance of the commencement of the court's next term."

    Stevens' announcement leaves ample time for the White House to settle on a successor and for Senate Democrats, who control a 59-vote majority, to hold confirmation hearings and a vote before the court's next term begins in October. Republicans have not ruled out attempts to delay confirmation.
    Will be interesting to see who Obama picks, and how the nomination goes.

    I bet the GOP filibusters literally any pick and doesn't even bother to claim it's based on qualifications rather than ideology.

    edit: And the longer they filibuster, the more it's going to hurt them. Imagine the ads for the 2010/2012 elections: "The GOP is using parliamentary tactics to stall the appointment process for the most important seat in the country."

    So do you ever debate things here or is it just all partisan all the time?

    I know I hate when people are so partisan! Now let's get back to discussing how the GOP is going to filibuster literally any pick and won't even bother to claim it's based on qualifications rather than ideology...

    I wonder what the Party of ‘No’ will say …
