Judge David Souter's upcoming retirement may merely be the first of several appointments Barack Obama will get to make. 

So-called conservatives who supported Barack Obama during the presidential campaign -- because he was "cool" or "charismatic" or "new" -- should now consider the gravity of their actions. 

Clearly, several aging justices were waiting-out the Bush years before retiring.  Obama may well appoint three or four young liberal justices in his first four term.
