Justice John Paul Stevens has announced that he is retiring from the Supreme Court when the current session ends this July.  Stevens was one of the court’s most liberal members, although he was appointed to the bench by Republican President Gerald Ford.  Stevens’ retirement will give a second Supreme Court pick to President Barack Obama.  Although Stevens’ replacement will swap a liberal for a liberal and won’t change the balance on the court, it will replace a 90-year old man with someone far younger, thus solidifying another liberal position on the court for years to come.
