I disagree with jacy... if Bush is reelected I predict that not one of the SCJs will retire.

Rehnquist is 80 and Stevens is at least 83. O'Connor is nearing 77, and Ginsburg has a heart condition. Between now and 2009, there will be at least one replacement.
We'll see.But even if someone does retire (or die) it won't be easy for Bush to get a new SCJ who will satisfy the requirements for your doomsday scenario... whatever that is. No matter what, Roe v. Wade's here to stay.
