Rumor has it that Elena Kagan will be announced soon as Obama's pick. She is a jewish american who is very liberal. Hopefully, she does not take her religion too seriously. Many jews, IMO, are able to separate their religious beliefs, if they have any, from their secular activities. They know the problems that can occur when religion and government mix.

She's a far cry from "very liberal."  I'm not sure what gave you that impression.  In fact, there's good reason to believe that her nomination would move the court significantly to the right.  Glenn Greenwald puts it all much better than I could.  Here's the link if you're interested:
