AP source: Obama has more than 6 people for court


Washington, DC – WASHINGTON (AP)
A source tells The Associated Press that President Barack Obama is considering Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and more than five other people as nominees for the Supreme Court.

An official familiar with Obama's decision-making said others include Solicitor General Elena Kagan, California Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and U.S. Appeals Court judges Sonia Sotomayor and Diane Pamela Wood - people who have been mentioned frequently as potential candidates.

The official said there were other people under consideration.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because no names have
been publicly revealed by the White House.
