First Homosexual On Highest Court?

In what is shaping up to be the "year of the gay" - we may have another milestone for gay people everywhere.

No, Hugh Jackman is NOT coming out of the closet.

It has been announced by The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and numerous law blogs that a lesbian woman is on the list of possible replacements for retiring Justice David Souter. Stanford Law School professor Kathleen Sullivan, widely considered one of America’s top constitutional scholars, is believe to be on the "short list" of possible nominees.

Sullivan is the Founder and Director of the Stanford Constitutional Law Center and was Dean of the Law School from 1999 until 2004. It is widely believed that President Obama would like to appoint a woman to the highest court seeing as there is currently only one female Justice.

Would be nice to see her get the spot!
