Could Loretta Lynch Be The Next Justice?

Another woman! Could President Barack Obama pick Attorney General Loretta Lynch to become the next Associate Justice of The Supreme Court?

The news today is the president won't exercise a recess appointment to the Supreme Court.

The president warned Republicans that he will take measures necessary to get a nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court. In due time, the president will pick a potential candidate who will face an uphill battle in the U.S. Senate.

The first African American woman could be nominated to replace the late Antonin Scalia. Some legal analysis signal that the president could choose his Attorney General as the potential nominee for the Supreme Court.

Loretta Lynch, the current Attorney General is floated around in the media. She was the first Attorney General in U.S. history to have a unprecedented hold on her confirmation. It took over 104 days before the Senate confirmed her with the slimmest of votes.

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), then Majority Leader warned Republicans that the "nuclear option" will happen if they continue to stall the president's nominees.

The SCOTUS blog signaled that Lynch is a "very serious choice" for the Court.

Many in the junk food media speculate who's going to be the pick for the Supreme Court. We have no clear name in the listing. But rest assured, the Republicans are adamant against any nominee President Barack Obama picks.

Who could be the pick for the Supreme Court?
