A Nominee in Early May?

| 1 Comment
Bill Mears at CNN reports that "government sources close to the selection process ... expect President Obama to make a decision by early May."

Mears' short-listers include the usual three (Kagan, Garland, Wood), plus USCA9 Judge Sidney Thomas, noted previously here and here, Cal. Justice Carlos Moreno, noted last time around here and here, and former Ga. CJ Leah Ward Sears.

Mears notes that Sears has aroused "some unease among liberals." She has been involved with the Institute of American Values, and (horrors!) she is a friend of Clarence Thomas.

Was there similar unease that Ginsburg was (and is) a friend of Scalia?
