I think the choice came to “Kagan or Wood?”

I’m thinking Wood- but so far no hints that I can find.

Regardless of who he chooses, I see this rash decision as possibly blowing up in their faces, given their track record of vetting cabinet officers.

Karl Rove is suspicious...he is questioning the timing. Too quick...not enough vetting, according to Karl.

I did a google search and some feminist page that seemed ticked they were not MORE LIBERAL... says this...

Sonia Sotomayor of New York, Diane P. Wood of Chicago, Solicitor General Elena Kagan and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. All of the women are said to be liberal. Diane Wood appears to be the most liberal and she's from Chicago

I cannot believe Janet Napolitano made the final 4 short list. She is a screw up AG!

I have a feeling the choice will be Diane Wood.

Since when does Obama care about vetting any of his nominees? As long as they filled out the 63 item job application, they're set.

Seems liberals can only empathize with homeless, ghetto dwellers, gays, union members, teachers, liberal elites and other dem voter groups.

In short, Obama wants a liberal who will bend toward liberal groups. Why doesn't he just say it?

Liberals NEVER put themselves in my shoes.

They NEVER empathize with me or people who think differently than they do.

Guess I'll follow their lead and try to "empathize" with gun owners, traditional family people, and those against abortion... Hey, it's not that hard to "empathize" with your own groups! (Liberals are so full of it they're eyes are brown...)

Great URL. Specifically this:

From Ed Whelan's article about Diane Wood:

Let's hope it's not this extremist.

WOnder if Wood is being “vetted” by Fitzpatrick......seeing she is from Chicago and the judge have a history of corruption/conviction there.

All are very liberal activists. Wood or Janet will be his choice to stab us in the back. Remember... he blocked Bushes nom but he has ordered his choice in pass hearings quickly (July).

Given the left-wing activism of this President, the pick is bound to be a bad one.
