My darkhorse favorite for SCOTUS, she probably has no shot but she is a "four-fer"
Linda is someone I have met on number of occasions, while she was slated as a candidate for circuit judge by the Cook County Democrats she lost in the primary. Since there is some talk about Obama picking someone not from the judiciary I think Linda would be an interesting choice.


The following is from a Sun-Times article on the slating of judges in Cook County:

-snip-
Burke is informed that Ryan has not yet arrived so he goes on to the first candidate for circuit court, assistant city attorney Linda Pauel.

With a slight Jamaican accent, Pauel describes her unique background: "I was born and raised in Jamaica, I happen to have mixed-race parentage. My mother is half black and half Chinese. My father is a Dutchman who adopted my sister who is half Venezuelan, so we really are a little bit of a melting pot just in our own home."

And she's gay.

One committeeman calls her a "four-fer." She'll have little problem getting slated.
