Justice Souter to Retire

Liberal Supreme Court Justice David Souter will be retiring. The following is his resignation letter (according to the AP):
Dear Mr. President. When the Supreme Court rises for the summer recess this year, I intend to retire from regular active service as a justice.

Yours respectfully, David Souter
Who will Obama name as Souter's replacement? That remains to be seen. The makeup of the Court will not change, as Souter has been consistently liberal since he was appointed by Pres. George H.W. Bush, and Obama is sure to appoint another liberal.
