April 9 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Al Hunt and Peter Cook talk with Margaret Brennan about Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens's plan to retire and the outlook for his potential successors. The retirement of Stevens, the court's liberal wing leader and its oldest justice at age 89, gives President Barack Obama his second chance to shape the closely divided court by appointing a successor. The Obama administration is focusing on three candidates to succeed Stevens: U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan and federal appellate judges Diane Wood and Merrick Garland, according to a White House official familiar with the situation.
