Meaning, that it's not clear that either of them have any plans to retire in Obama's first term. If Obama serves two terms, I think he'll end up putting as many as five justices on the court, but I also think three of those would occur in his second term. The true wild card here is obviously Kennedy. If he were to announce his retirement before 2012, that would be the true bombshell.
