Personally, I would love to see Donald Trump's big sister appointed, just for the lols (http://www.nytimes.com...)

Just kidding, my first choice is actually Amalya Lyle Kearse, whom I have always found to be an immensely inspiring figure. She's moderate, a rennaisance woman, and as smart as a whip. He achievements are unprecedented, and I think that she should have been appointed a long time ago.

Second choice would be Edith Brown Clement, who is also pretty moderate on hot-button issue, while having a good record on freedom of speech.

I would also like to see any of the following:

And if Obama wants to respect the balance of the court, he could always appoint Janice Rogers Brown.

That questions the distempered part;
Beneath the bleeding hands we feel
The sharp compassion of the healer's art"

I have to say I am very open at this moment. Not Trumps sister, but I will be very interested to see what names start to get floated about.

I'm hoping for a minority/woman moderate or conservative. It will make the nomination go so much more smoothly while maintaining some semblance of balance on the Supreme Court. I despise Kagan's stances on free speech, so I hope against hope that the next nominee doesn't share them.
