Obama Meets with Senate Leaders on Supreme Court Picks

Hosted by

At a White House meeting with Senators from both parties, President Obama today predicted a "smooth, civil, thoughtful" process for replacing retiring US Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. Asked if he'd nominate anyone who did not support a woman's right to choose an abortion, Obama said there is no litmus test. Joan Biskupic reports on the court for USA Today and has written biographies of former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and current Justice Antonin Scalia.
