Feddie at Southern Appeal says here that he thinks the President will nominate Janice Rogers Brown, which could mean that the nominee will be someone else, as I don't recall that Feddie has nailed any of these picks, unlike Tom Goldstein of SCOTUSBlog, who has guessed right on both Chief Justice Roberts and non-Justice Miers and who says this time it will me Judge Alito.
Professor Berman is also thinking about Judge Brown.
Any how, all that gives me sufficient occasion to repost once again this link to a law school graduation speech by Janice Rogers Brown, with the following introduction, which I find delightful:
"We once welcomed law students by inviting them into the brotherhood. Now, with so many women in the profession that no longer seems right. But, we can certainly understand why our brethren would not wish to be part of a sisterhood. A friend of mine, Justice Vance Raye, came up with the perfect solution. He said, from now on we should just call it the 'hood.' So, let me be the first to welcome you … to the 'hood.'"
