Making a Supreme Court short list is an interesting November 18, 2008 article from the National Law Journal. The article points out that whoever Obama appoints (if he gets that opportunity) will not face tough opposition given the Democratic control of Congress.The article believes implies that D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick Garland who is 56 years old and appointed by President Clinton is the front runner. Others who are mentioned are Harvard Law Dean Elena Kegan or Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree Jr.
