Ah yeah, a bit odd feeling about that. He's got presidential protection in his position now as has been shown. Unless there has been some seriously damning information that we haven't seen yet I don't understand why he'd be stepping down. Don't get me wrong, he needs to go, needs to be Removed. Stepping down on his own makes me think there's something much bigger going on.
Lets pray no supreme court judge dies!!!! Obama will nominate him in a NY min.
