Justice Stevens will retire at the end of this session of the Supreme Court.

Obama gets his second appointment to the court.  Can he choose who he would like or does the GOP spend what little political capital they have on a filibuster.

Rumors are already flying about the next possible justice.  Sen. Arlen Specter’s name has been floated, but not by any credible source.  Specter would not be bad, but it would be difficult to sell him to Obama’s base.
