The Post reports on the politics of naming Justice Stevens’s replacement here.
Nan Aron of the liberal Alliance for Justice said Obama should pay no heed to Senate Republicans who warn him against a nominee as liberal as Stevens.
“Republicans will oppose any nominee sent up by the president,” she said. “This is already a court that’s tilted in favor of large corporations and special interests. Justice Stevens’s replacement ought to be a person who understands how decisions affect the rights of everyday Americans.”
