    How many justice are expected to retire during the next 4 years? And which ones?

    I don't know the answer off the top of my head, but if conservative justices are the ones getting old, then maybe we should have Romney. Same goes in reverse.

    Supreme Court make-up is pretty much the only reason I will vote against my otherwise leanings.

    The estimates are anywhere between 1-3. Probably Ginsburg for sure....but Kennedy is another possibility as is Breyer. Even Scalia is a possibility although unlikely.
    This means that 1 left leaning moderate is going to leave. The one true moderate is somewhat likely to leave and another moderate a lesser possibility. If one or all three are replaced with hard right activist judges, it will dramatically shift the balance of the court which is now 5-4. Obama replacing them with other moderates or even left-leaning moderates will keep the court somewhat balanced. In order to truly balance the court, Obama would need to appoint a couple of hard liberal judges, but that is not likely in today's political climate.

    In answer to your question....none of the conservative justices are likely to retire in the next four years.

    Only if you want to see the radical right-wing social agenda enacted...which would set this country back half a decade. Not the "welcome progress" that the majority of Americans want to see for this Country.

    Re: Your candidate LOSES - what do you do?

    Hmm...This has already happened to me - 4 years ago.

    I basically continued more or less as usual, although with less expectation that things would go as I thought they should.


    It helps if you're not really invested in a candidate, but rather (in my case at least) voting for the best of two bad options.

    I suppose Iíll continue as usual and hope the one who isnít my candidate doesnít screw things up as badly as I think he will.

    I stare at TGND's tits. Ironically, if my candidate wins, I stare at TGND's tits.
