The Next Justice

WASHINGTON (AP) - A source tells The Associated Press that President Barack Obama is considering California Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno and more than five other people as nominees for the Supreme Court.

An official familiar with Obama's decision-making said others include Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and U.S. Appeals Court judges Sonia Sotomayor and Diane Pamela Wood—people who have been mentioned frequently as potential candidates.

I know someone with DHS who believes that Napolitano is a shoe-in for the job. His reasoning is that the borderline retarded Napolitano is a near daily embarrassment to the Bamster but as only one loony-left voice along with the other three on the High Court she would be more anonymous.

This could very well true, but I still hold out some small hope that some little corner of Obama's scrunched up little soul doesn't hate America enough to do this.
