WASHINGTON (AP) – A source tells The Associate Pressthat 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.
The official said there were other people under consideration. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because no names have been publicly revealed by the White House.
I find it incredulous that Obama is even considering Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Janet Napolitano or Carlos Moreno. Just ask any Michigander exactly how Granholm hasn’t done a damn thing for them – I should know as we have family living there and things aren’t good- and it’s not just the auto industry that’s broken. As for Janet – just look at how she’s reacted (or not) to the recent SWINE FLU outbreak – talk about incompetent. Carlos Moreno – check out his views on abortion, homosexuality, etc. The other three nominees might be non-biased, but we won’t know until they pass muster in their nomination and are sitting on the bench.
