Yesterday, President Obama interviewed 7th Circuit Cour of Appeals judge Diane Wood, who is reportedly one of two finalists on Obama's very short short-list of finalists for the Supreme Court vacancy created by David Souter's pending retirement.

The other? US Solicitor General Elana Kagan.

Both women were in town yesterday for a conference at the Georgetown University Law Center. Kagan gave the keynote address.
