Souter retiring from Supreme Court

In a surprising move, Associate Supreme Court Justice David Souter will retire at the end of the court's current term in June.

Speculation is that Barack Obama will pick a woman to succeed the George H.W. Bush appointee. Souter ended up as a member of the liberal wing of the court, to the chagrin of conservatives.

Who will Obama pick? Well, former Weather Underground terrorist Benardine Dohrn, wife of Bill Ayers, is a Northwestern University law professor.

This reeks of cronyism. Shouldn't he know better than that?
