Justice Souter

Justice Souter has decided it is time to retire and return to his farm house in New Hampshire. I hadn't known until today that Justice Souter was nominated by George H. Bush. (Seems like something I should have known).

Now knowing where his position as Justice of the Supreme Court originated, I will agree that Justice Souter has been quite the let down. He has regularly voted with the liberal/progessive side of the court and has been a part of some cases that will have lasting damage, including the Kelo decision and its ridiculous broadening of eminent domain and Casey which upheld most of Roe v. Wade.

Unfortunately, the short list of replacements is not only more of the same, but appears to be much more dangerous.
