In his surprise press conference recently, President Obama vowed that he would replace retiring Justice Souter with an "independent" legal mind. He gave no word on the nominee's gender, but the odds that he will pick a woman are better than 50-50.
Only two women have ever sat on the court, and right now Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the only lady justice. Still, President Bush faced the same situation and he nominated two men to the court during his term.
Do you think being a woman should be on the list of qualifications for Supreme Court Justice?
