How about a Lesbian on the Supreme Court of the United States? Kathleen Sullivan could be a candidate to replace Souter

Supreme Court justice David Souter, who will be retiring at the end of the court’s term, may be replaced by out lesbian Kathleen Sullivan, according to

Sullivan, a professor at the Stanford Law School who served as dean of the school from 1999 to 2004, founded and currently acts as director of the Stanford Constitutional Law Center. She has also been involved in some of the most historically prominent LGBT-related court cases, including Bowers v. Hardwick and Lawrence v. Texas.

Her potential nomination has been mentioned on law blogs as well as in The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal.
