Anthony Kennedy, the Supreme Court's swing vote

Anthony Kennedy, the Supreme Court's swing voteAs the US Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments Tuesday in the highly anticipated "gay wedding cake" case, all eyes are once again on Justice Anthony Kennedy, the fulcrum upon which the bench has turned for a decade. The case, which pits Christian conservatives against progressives and the LGBT community, concerns a Colorado baker who, due to his religious beliefs, refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. Eighty-one-year-old Kennedy, who was appointed by Republican president Ronald Reagan in 1987 and is the court's longest serving judge, is widely expected to provide the decisive vote.
