Hey Pres Obama, How about Joel Rogers for SC

Joel Rogers—professor of law, political science, and sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison—would bring a common, everyman sensibility to the U.S. Supreme Court.

All right, this MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant recipient won't bring the common-man quality, but Rogers is indisputably brilliant and knowledgeable.

He would be a worthy successor to the scholarly Justice Souter, and a nice contrast to the two Bush ideologues, Roberts and Alito.

Many Republicans speak well of Rogers, the founder and director the research-policy center, the Center on Wisconsin Strategy (COWS).

He's in his 50s, and the guy seems to know everyone.

Forget demographics, go for the brains.
