    I don't think the philosophical composition of the Court will change all that much with this pick. Souter's a liberal; he'll be replaced with a liberal.

    My hopes are these: I agree wholeheartedly with your first paragraph. That cannot be understated.

    Second, I think it should be a woman. That Justice Ginsberg is the only woman on the Court is atrocious. Our Court needs to, as much as possible, reflect our society. And women are at least 50% of that society.

    Third, she should be young. Not to be ageist, but we want this Justice around for a long, long time. I'd shoot for early to mid-50s.
