Handicapping the Supreme nomination
Here's a link to the piece I did for the Register's Sunday Commentary section on the (likely) frontrunners to be appointed by Obama to the Supreme Court. From what I was able to determine I wouykld be amazed if the new appointee isn't a woman. My top picks (as of now) are Diane Woods of the 7th Circuit (Chicago), Sonia Sotomayor of the 2nd Circuit (New York) and Solicitor General Elena Kagan, formely dean of Harvard Law. If Obama surprises us it won't bother me much, however.
