Judge Wood teaches Civil Procedure at my school, and I think she would make a great choice.

Part of me hopes he picks Kim McLane Wardlaw to bring some West Coast flavor to SCOTUS.

The other part of me hopes he doesn't because I really wanted to attempt to clerk for her in California when the time came :)  This is, of course, rather stupid and selfish.  But it's the only negative I can think of ;D

I know people stumping for Kim Crenshaw! Which would be totally sweet. Don't think it's going to happen, though  :D

And not to be boring, but I do happen to think Sotomayor is pretty cool.

Kimberle Crenshaw is the effing WOMAN!!!  I do think it would be neat to see the relationship between Clarence Thomas and a woman who worked on Anita Hill's legal team though :D

I haven't read any of her 2nd circuit opinions, besides a few on transformative use.  Are there any that show a ideological interest, as coined by Obama, in "judging by empathy"?

I haven't read many Crenshaw opinions, either.

This is totally left-field, but I would love to see McKeown.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M._Margaret_McKeown  I've read a few of her IP opinions, as well as a very lucid "abuse of discretion" Rule 11 one, and I love the way she writes.

Times like these make you realize how many amazing potential candidates are out there.

No petty bickering, please.

"Today, as President Obama moves to pick his first Supreme Court nominee as a successor to retiring Justice David H. Souter ó a choice many political observers expect will be a woman ó he finds a vastly altered scene, with women holding dozens of seats on the nationís appellate courts, occupying deanís offices at prestigious law schools, and serving in some of the highest political offices in the nation."

I think it will be Sotomayor, or a random female politician/lawyer who is off the radar (sort of a liberal version of Miers or Palin or O'Connor).


 sonia sotomayor... ;) aye believe.
