The speculation regarding the retirements of Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and John Paul Stevens continues. "That can't be news," Stevens reportedly said, "I'm not exactly a kid." Ginsberg has seemingly not commented.
Following closely on any rumor of retirement is discussion of possible nominees. Among those being mentioned are Elana Kagan, Diane Wood (Judge on the Seventh Circuit, pictured below) and Cass Sunstein.
