PICK THE NEXT JUSTICE, WIN BOOKS:

Obama now talking with possible high court picks (BEN FELLER, 4/22/10, ASSOCIATED PRESS)

With 59 usually reliable votes from Democrats and independents in the Senate, Obama is in a strong position to pick the person he wants. He would need 60 votes to head off a filibuster. Obama aides are confident that they can get that support and that Republicans won't go that route anyway.

Among the people Obama is considering for the court are federal appeals court judges Diane Wood, Merrick Garland and Sidney Thomas, former Georgia Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears, Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Harvard Law School dean Martha Minow.


The UR gets another Supreme Court pick and if you guess who he'll choose we've got some books to give away.
