Most news sources are now reporting that President Obama is narrowing in on his nominee for the Supreme Court and will likely announce his decision next week, just before leaving on a lengthy foreign trip in early June.

More specifically, Fox News is hypothesizing that the pick will be announced either Tuesday morning or Friday night because of the Memorial Day holiday and the President’s travel plans Tuesday afternoon thru Thursday.

News agencies are still reporting on the same “shortlist” of candidates we’ve been hearing about for the last few weeks. Diane Wood, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor are the only names being listed by every account and some also list Carlos Moreno, Pamela Karlan, Jennifer Granholm, Janet Napolitano, and Kim Wardlaw.
