White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says president Obama is close to picking his Supreme Court nominee. Manhattan's Elena Kagan, the Solicitor General of the United States, is still the rumored front-runner to replace Justice John Paul Stevens, even though public record of her legal opinions has been limited. Obama has interviewed at least four candidates including Kagan, and one White House spokesman said, "We're ready to go when the President says he's ready to go, but as of right now he has not told me, (senior adviser David) Axelrod or Gibbs that he's made a decision."
