Odds on Favorite For Obama’s Supreme Court Pick

Just posted on Political Wire:

The White House will announce President Obama’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court at 10:15 am.

The Intrade political futures markets predict Obama will pick Elena Kagan, followed by Diane Wood, Sonia Sotomayor and Jennifer Granholm.


It is interesting to me that there are no men begin mentioned to replace Justic David Souter. We’ll just have to see later this morning.
