Default White House Prepares for Possibility of 2 Supreme Court Vacancies

White House Prepares for Possibility of Two Supreme Court Vacancies - ABC News

Quote:
Court watchers believe two of the more liberal members of the court, justices John Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, could decide to step aside for reasons of age and health. That would give the president his second and third chance to shape his legacy on the Supreme Court.

Last week, when Obama took the nearly unprecedented step of criticizing the court's opinion in a major campaign finance case during his State of the Union speech, some believed he was showcasing for the American people that presidential elections, and Supreme Court nominations count.
I worry less about the people obama appoints to the SC right now as he will replace two liberals with liberals. Now if a conservative judge steps down or God forbid drops dead then we are going to have a shift in the court.
