Unfortunately, politics will raise its ugly head and all hell will break loose.
A pox on both parties.
Obama readies Court announcement
WASHINGTON (AP) - Several officials say President Barack Obama has settled on his pick for the Supreme Court and intends to make a midmorning announcement.
Obama is widely expected to name a woman to replace retiring Justice David Souter, and perhaps a Hispanic.
Souter has announced plans to retire at the end of the court's current term.
Two federal appeals court judges have figured prominently in speculation about Obama's pick. They include Sonia Sotomayor and Diane Wood.
The officials who described Obama's plans did so on condition of anonymity.
