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.
"Whatever else is evil, the pride of a good mother in the beauty of her daughter is good. It is one of those adamantine tendernesses which are the touchstones of every age and race. If other things are against it, other things must go down. If landlords and laws and sciences are against it, landlords and laws and sciences must go down. With the red hair of one she-urchin in the gutter I will set fire to all modern civilization."

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.
