Elections...still having consequences

This is a prime example of what we donated, canvassed, and voted for:
Obama Announces Souter's Retirement

In a surprising move, President Obama personally announced the retirement of Justice David H. Souter from the Supreme Court shortly after 3 p.m. on Friday, arriving unannounced into the White House briefing room. He praised the tenure of Mr. Souter, saying that he served with integrity and “consistently defied labels.”

“I will seek someone with a sharp, independent mind and a record of excellence and integrity,” Mr. Obama said in brief remarks at the podium. He added that he would “seek somebody who shares my respect for constitutional values.”
The 22 percent party's "the President's judicial nominees deserve an up-or-down vote" rhetoric goes back in the drawer in 5...4...3...2...
