In light of Justice David H. Souter's plans to retire from the Supreme Court in June, NYTimes.com is taking its readers’ pulse with an interactive feature to see who they would pick as a replacement, if they were president.
The Times invites Media Law Prof Blog readers to explore the listed candidates, view the current ranking and submit their top choices.
Readers can choose from a list of contenders, from judge Sonia Sotomayer, currently in the lead, to former president Bill Clinton, or write in their own nominee.
This interactive feature is part of the “If you were president” series that began in November 2008, when readers were asked to select and write-in nominees for President Obama’s cabinet.
