Associated Press:
Justice Ginsburg Not Leaving Court ‘Anytime Soon’  —  WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats and liberals have a nightmare vision of the Supreme Court's future: President Barack Obama is defeated for re-election next year and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, at 78 the oldest justice, soon finds her health will not allow her to continue on the bench.
Steve Benen / Washington Monthly:
It's Reagan's party no more  —  It should cause no shortage of frustration for congressional Republicans that President Obama is in line with the Reagan legacy — and they're actively rejecting it.  Politico's David Rogers had a fine piece of reporting touching on this point yesterday.
New York Times:
Strauss-Kahn Case Adds to Doubts on Prosecutor  —  Cyrus R.

Here's The Legal Complaint WikiLeaks Is Threatening To File Against Visa, MasterCard  —  More than six months have passed since Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, and others cut WikiLeaks' purse strings.  And if that blockade lasts six more days, the secret-spilling group plans to take its financial fight to the courtroom.
