I think Sotomayor was Bush I, and she was a compromise pick, elevated by Clinton to 2d. Cir.  I saw her speak once; I really liked her. 
The main partner in their Entertainment Law group went to CLS, but he was Fiske and on LR, so be careful.  You don't want to set yourself goals that are too high.

A lot of people don't think Obama wants someone "easier [to] confirm" since he has all the political capital right now.  I think that's more liberal law prof wishful thinking, though.
