BREAKING: NBC News is reporting that tomorrow, President Obama will nominate U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan to be the next Supreme Court Justice.
Kagan would be another liberal, replacing the liberal Justice Stevens who is stepping down. The balance on the court would remain a precarious 5-4 conservative majority, with Justice Kennedy sometimes voting on the liberal side of the ledger.
It will be interesting to see if the Republicans just roll over on this, or whether they will put up a fight against Kagan's nomination.
