Kelo: Not Long for this World?

In recent remarks, Justice Scalia mentioned Kelo v. New London alongside Dred Scott v. Sanford and Roe v. Wade as decisions in which the Court made a mistake of "political judgment," underestimating the extent to which the decision would provoke a widespread public backlash.  I wonder what he would say about the role of Citizens United in sparking the Occupy Wall Street protests.  In any event, Scalia also predicted that Kelo would soon be overruled.
