Replacement of Justice Souter

In the Washington Times this morning, there is an article that reports that President Obama wants a judge who has empathy and will use that as one of the criterion he uses for selecting a replacement for Justice David Souter (who has announced that he will retire from the court at the end of this session). It is a foregone conclusion that he will be selecting someone with a liberal tilt, but if the justices of our U.S. Supreme Court can not or will not interpret and apply the law as written and, instead, make rulings based on how or what they feel about a particular case, then it may very likely be the end of days for America!
