Huge, huge news. Most Presidents go through their entire term without getting to appoint a Supreme Court Justice, let alone two.
Course I also see the Republican led Congress throwing endless tantrums and refusing to confirm anyone until the next President. Much like the Republicans are refusing (Putting on hold and then not bringing up again) so many appointments, even though they should only be objecting if there is reasonable cause to, not because their side isn't at the head of the nation. This stupidity is why the approval rating is around 11% for all of Congress.
