News break from the AP: President Obama has added a man to his female-dominated short list to replace Supreme Court Justice David Souter. Sources tell the news wire the president is considering more than the reported six people for the post, and one of the add-ons is Carlos Moreno, a California judge who voted to legalize gay marriage in the state. The other possible picks include U.S. Appeals Court judges Sonia Sotomayor and Diane Pamela Wood, Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Obama is under pressure to nominate the court’s first Hispanic judge, and he’s also widely expected to name a woman. But surprises could be in store: Sources say he’s considering some people who haven’t yet been named publicly and has yet to narrow down his list.
