Obama sits down with Diane Wood in latest Supreme Court meeting

Updated 7:22 p.m.
By Anne E. Kornblut
President Obama met with federal appeals courts Judge Diane Wood on Tuesday, continuing his process of interviewing potential candidates for the Supreme Court, according to a source familiar with the conversation.

Wood, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, also interviewed with Vice President Biden.

That brings to four the number of candidates who have met with Obama in recent weeks, after federal Judges Merrick Garland and Sydney Thomas and Solicitor General Elena Kagan.

An official involved in the nomination process said Obama is getting "very close" to making his final decision about a replacement for Justice John Paul Stevens, who has announced his retirement this summer. Obama's nomination is expected to come early next week -- but could, the person warned, happen even earlier.

Do it, Barack. No one you name with a three digit IQ will gain any support from the republicans and their mouthpieces faux "news", limbaugh, beck, bachmann and co. Intelligence, competence and application of the law for PEOPLE, not corporations are something they cannot fathom. Tom Toles cartoon in today's WP hit the nail right on the head. Diane Wood is more qualified than anyone republicans could begin to imagine.

My bet is that Dianne Wood will be chosen,period.I am all in for this guess. She has the qualifications, no baggage, she is a woman, and progressives will support her - she is perfect. Kagan has too much baggage, Garland - too many Chicago connections.

I do not understand the comments that Obama is the Anti-Christ. But I guess I have not caught up with birthers either. Does this have something to do with his having a tiny, secret tatoo that came from the extraterrestrials at Roswell, New Mexico? Hmmm. This is serious.

My fellow Democrats. Just love your comments. The split between The Envious Anglo Party (TEA) and the NOP, formerly known as the GOP, is utter and complete. The losses sustained by the NOP are now in possession of the ultra right wing ditto heads who claim they can control spending and yet when asked how? They yell "don't touch my Social Security and Medicare". Ok..Einstein...then where?

If the NOP was given the gift of governance they would have no clue as to where to begin. They just know that what they lost is what they want back (therefore the cry "take back our country). They are also ripped that a black POTUS is doing a better job then even their God Reagan ever thought about doing.

Paula Kamena California

Mrs. Kamena even had a day named for her 9 years ago, because of her due diligence to her work in the law profession.

Diane Wood is an excellent candidate for Supreme Court Justice, and will I am certain serve the nation well. Personally, I hope she is chosen.

I think it sad that in such a trying time for the U.S. the best input the Rethugs and Tea-bags can come up with is that Obama is the anti-Boom-Boom. I always thought the old saw: " I may not believe the same things as you, but I'll fight for your right to believe them," was a noble American idea. With this bunch of wing-nuts I'm forced to re-evaluate that perspective. These bozos are bucking for another Civil War.

The internet has proven to be a great resource for information and communication; however, it has also provided a platform for views uninfluenced by facts or reasons. Some of the comments on this article about President Obama being the "Anti-Christ" fit into this category. People in virtual anonymity express views that they would never do in the company of others. I know that it is not politically correct to call people 'crazy' but in these cases we should tolerate the exception.

The right-wing kooks really come out of the woodwork with Obama! Not a US citizen. An "authoritarian" another nut says. Anti-Christ even! Makes you realize just how looney some of the people in this country are. Even "jhr1" who tried to rein in his spittle-spewing froth, thinks Obama is a Marxist!

What a bunch of uneducated people! Get a grip folks - Obama is a very intelligent, normal person with high ideals and socially liberal views.

Barack Obama is an authoritarian. he appointed an authoritarian, Sonia Sotomayor, to the USSC last year. He will appoint another authoritarian this year.

America will be screwed with a police state from the top down for the next thirty years.

If you really want to know the 'documented 'truth of who Obama really is,pick up a copy of the # 1 non fiction book of America called "manchurian president".If it doesn't open your eyes,then you my friend are truly blind!!

When did the Antichrist become an errand boy named Skippy?

For all of you who are saying Obama is the Anti-Christ, you are sick! You are twisted and you are absolutely a bunch of idiots. Go to your bible and read it! The description of the Anti-Christ clearly is speaking of Republicans and President Bush. War that has killed thousands of Americans and those from Iraq and Afghanistan. You are all sick. Be thankful that we FINALLY have a President who cares about ALL PEOPLE AND ALL RELIGIONS. Even those who mock him, he cares for you as well. Look at your paycheck and see the reduced deductions. GOD HELP YOU ALL.

If you truly want to know what is going on; Then you will have to accept these things as the TRUTH. Once you understand the following things; All things will be understood. So I tell you Obama is the Anti-Christ, Devil on Earth, or what ever else you want to call this Demonic Figure. His words describe him, He is a False Hope, If you listen to him you will love him. He carries a Bow without an Arrow. He will conquer all through his speech, his false hoods will capture all who sit and listen to him.

How far have we fallen when the guy selling fake Air Jordan's makes much more sense than most of the serious posters??

It has become impossible to tell the difference between people using hyperbole to mock the craziness of RW conspiracies and the huge number of RW nuts posting their lunacies.

Hey, the fringe has become mainstream - just ask Dana Perino.

To heck with this antichrist stuff. Back here in the real world, what will happen is that he will nominate an unabashed radical, leftist, marxist-leaning, income-redistributing political gangster.

Nonsense? I beg to differ. Human beings are not indigious to the Earth - they were brought here from the outside. The Ancient Pyramids could not have been built by humans - expert debate this possibility. Humankinds' entire history is written in stone in what is known to be "The Great Pyramid" of Giza.

In 2033, the forces that brought humankind to to this world, will return after beasts' destruction. Very few, if anyone, has this information.

"Where does all ths info come from?"

Please explain why you believe that ancient people actually knew the future. The stuff you're talking about isn't "info". It's nonsense.

By his devious commentary, reader "makom" [May 4, 2010 7:53 PM] reveals himself to be the Antichrist. He must be found out at once and removed from any influence on the People of Christ.

Oh, my God, what a idiot. Obama, the anti-Christ? Thats a good one. The "Anti-Christ" will not appear until 2026 - after the "great injury" to the beast. There are 2 beasts -
1 is a great nation, the other is a man, warmly known to many books as the "Great Prophet" or "man of sin" - this guy is the real anti-christ. The great nation is the United States (unfortunately). The bio-metric law will be imposed to all individuals (after the "great injury" to the first beast) in the year 2029 (International Real ID). The great invasion will come in the year 2033 (3 1/2 years into the beasts' reign).

The Great Injury is a nuclear event that will obliterate an east coast city in the U. S. (causing for the IRID to incur at the demands of the second beast (man of sin). The Great Injury's date is undetermined but the closest our collegues can get is 2024 or 2025 (The dates are too damaged in the stones of origins).

Where does all ths info come from?
The great pyramid of Giza (and studied by 3 scholars in Europe. I'm one of them)

Who is the 2nd Beast? unknown - but his is of jewish and arab decent and will be a very "regilious" man.

I told you about it. I warned you about it. Now watch it unfold. Obama is the Anti-Christ. I will warn you once again. The Mark of the Beast on your Forehead is when you Accept the Anti-Christ through Blind Faith. The Mark of the Beast on your Hand is when you Accept the Anti-Christ through Gifts. People Obama is the Anti-Christ.
