Obama's Solicitor General: Kathleen Sullivan?

***Check Back For Updates***

A recent article in the ABA journal said that Kathleen Sullivan may be on the short list for Obama's Solicitor General
According to the piece:

Sullivan, 53, was dean of Stanford Law School from 1999 to 2004, and in private practice she's represented a wide variety of corporate clients and trade associations. But she may be more widely known for her pro bono work in high-profile cases involving civil rights and civil liberties. Considered a constitutional scholar with the ability to find clarity in complex legal concepts, Sullivan has argued four cases before the Supreme Court. She now chairs the national appellate practice group at Quinn Emanuel and is licensed to practice in California, Massachusetts and New York. Sullivan still teaches at Stanford, but she counts as her mentor Harvard professor Laurence Tribe, an avid Obama supporter.
