here's a list of potential candidates from wiki:
out of most of them, Kegan looks ok...anyone that would seriously Granholm is a fucking moron, particularly after what she's done to this state. Same goes with Napolitano.After Stevens announced his retirement, an anonymous White House official said that about ten people are under consideration. The leading contenders to replace Stevens are said to include Seventh Circuit Judge Diane Pamela Wood and Solicitor General Elena Kagan, both of whom were interviewed for the David Souter vacancy, and D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick B. Garland, who was also considered for the Souter vacancy. Others mentioned include Ninth Circuit Judge Sidney Runyan Thomas, former Georgia Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears, Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Woods and Garland look like the best choices out of all of them...

Seems like he's mostly interested in getting his old chums from Univerity of Chicago Law School. . . .
Granholm has no judicial experience and her legal experience is limited to one term as Michigan's AG and years working as corporate council for the late Wayne County executive, Ed McNamara. I don't think Obama really wants congress looking at the latter over a supreme court nominee. If anyone really looked into McNamara's books, a whole lot of still-living people would be going to jail, including two governors, a disgraced ex-Detroit mayor and both of his parents, various cops and officials, and Magic Johnson. It's my favorite real conspiracy theory, because everyone has ignored it since McNamara died before the feds could indict him.
I really don't know much about Janet Napolitano's legal backround. I know she's roundly despised here. I don't know much about Kegan, either.
