Well then I guess we get Clement (assuming Clement is smart) or maybe O'Connell is my guess. Other then Jones (too hot button probably), I don't know any other super smart women available with the right background. Do you?

There's a law school dean (Elena Kagan), a legal scholar (Mary Ann Glendon), and a high-power attorney (Maureen Mahoney) that may fit the bill, but I don't know enough about their past writings or statements to guess. They may very well shy away from another non-judge though, that's why I narrowed it down to Edith Clement. The rest have a paper trail that's either too glaringly right or too glaringly soft. The WH might've tried hard-right to begin with, but I don't think they'll want any kind of fight if the Miers nomination goes down, so they'll go stealth again, just higher-quality stealth.

Edith Jones is every bit as sharp as John Roberts. I was very disappointed when she wasn't named. And yes, her writings on the roadmap to overturn ROe have a lot to do with it.

Full disclosure as GreyWhiskers says.
