What Does the Presidential Election Mean for the Supreme Court?
The Presidential election will bring not only new leadership to the executive branch of government, but also (as always) has the potential to shake up the judicial branch. Some are already predicting that there are three justices who may step down—depending on who gets into office. What with the closeness of the election and the recent political atmosphere, some are already speculating as to whom McCain or Obama might pick to don the robes of a Supreme Court justice. At the very least there is a lot of talk about what landmark cases each candidate might be looking to either support or do away with. Go take a look at the Legal Times, the Washington Post, the ABA Journal, or the Chicago Tribune articles on the possible future of the U.S. Supreme Court.
