Today John Paul Stevens officially announced that he will resign at the end of this term. As I state in today’s column in USA Today, it is the end of an era for liberals. I discussed the issue on this segment of Countdown.
Stevens has long been a personal hero for me for obvious reason. We are both from Chicago. We both received our undergraduate degrees at University of Chicago and law degrees at Northwestern. We both worked at the same law firm. And most importantly we are both Cubs fans.
I will have more to say tonight on Countdown.
