Pondering Stevens’ SCOTUS exit

John Paul StevensThe White House is reportedly considering  possible candidates to nominate for the Supreme Court seat which may soon be vacated by 89-year-0ld Justice John Paul Stevens.   Political Science Professor Graham Wilson says political reality dictates that the ability of the GOP minority in the Senate to delay or block nominations must be taken into serious consideration.

“Obama might need to nominate a candidate with a safer record and someone where opposition to them would seem to display political animus against the group – women, Hispanics, African Americans – from which they come.”
