Supreme Court Justice Souter To Retire
Professor Pamela S. Karlan and Professor and former Dean Kathleen M. Sullivan are listed in The Washington Post as possible nominees in place of retiring Justice David Souter:
While Obama's choice would probably be far different from the 69-year-old intellectual bachelor from New Hampshire, the replacement would almost surely have a similar ideological outlook. Most court observers also believe Obama would be likely to choose a woman as his first appointment, since Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the lone female among the nine justices.
