Here Comes the Judge

There is some speculation that Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, a staunch liberal, will retire next year. Stevens, who is 89, was appointed by President Gerald Ford in 1975 and is the second-oldest justice in the court's history after Oliver Wendell Holmes. If Stevens does step down, President Barack Obama will have his second high court opening in two years. Obama chose Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who is considered more of a moderate, for the court when Justice David Souter announced his retirement in May. My husband thinks the President should appoint me to replace Stevens, because I'm just what this country needs - a good Polish liberal!
