Souter to retire

This news is all over the place... but here is the NYT story. I don't really have much insight here other than that he's retiring fairly young for a Supreme Court Justice and he's fairly liberal. Being that appointing another liberal won't change the balance of the court, and the GOP doesn't even have 41 Senators anymore... I don't imagine it will be a particularly difficult appointment... but who knows? As I come across so-called "informed opinion", I will link to it.
