It is November 5th, 2008, and Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States last night.
One of my gravest concerns with an Obama presidency has been the Supreme Court. The good news is that Roberts, Alito and Thomas are all quite young. I had to boogie over to Wikipedia to check Scalia's age - he's 70 - but he seems vigorous and I can only hope that he's as healthy as he looks and sounds. Kennedy is 72. Of course, I am less concerned about losing him since he's been so unreliable lately.
I think we're OK until at least 2012. But we've got to win that one.
