someday, an asian american supreme court justice

This New York Times article speculates on how and who, if he should be elected President, Barack Obama would nominate as judicial candidates to the Supreme Court: Stark Contrasts Between McCain and Obama in Judicial Wars.

One of the names the article throws out there is Harold Hongju Koh, Dean of the Yale Law School, an esteemed legal scholar and former human rights official in the Clinton State Department. If nominated, he would become the nation's first Asian American justice.

Of course, this is all just speculation, and he's one of many possible candidates. Still, how cool would that be? Yeah, it's just a dream, and it's definitely a long way off. But hey, it could happen. Read more about Harold Koh here.
