from NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell: Chertoff may no longer be in the running. Lots of names are in the mix now, with and “Paul Clement, George Terwilliger and Larry Silberman are among those being considered.” I have no idea if these rumors are true or total baloney, but I would prefer Clement among that group. But I still think Chertoff would be better than any of those three. I think they should also talk to David Levi, currently the Dean of Duke Law School and a former District Judge (and the son of former AG Edward Levi). Thanks to Simon Dodd for the link.
