The Supreme Court Justice Rankings

1. Favorite Supreme Court Justice: David Hackett Souter

Recently thrust in the spotlight because of a jogging incident, Souter is much more than a "stealth justice." He was appointed by George H.W. Bush, who was encouraged to nominate Souter by his aide John Sununu. Sununu was sure Souter would be a Scalia clone with a less controversial paper trail. Souter surprised everyone by voting with the "liberal" wing of the court on abortion, affirmative action, search and seizure, etc. cases. He's awesome.

(more to come...)
