Words of comfort from a Supreme Court historian
He said that GENERALLY SPEAKING, SC justices tend to be more liberal than originally projected. Often, a president will nominate someone he thinks is a conservative, but once the justice starts making decisions, he is not bound by politics, but the Constitution. He also said that SC justices tend to become more liberal the longer they are on the bench.

Sorry, I don't have any link for this. It was something I heard on The News Hour a couple of weeks ago.

I knew someone would bring up Scalia and Thomas!
