Clock Ticks on Obama's Court Pick

President Obama's interview schedule suggests he's on track for announcing his pick to the Supreme Court by June 3, when he leaves for an overseas trip. Sources say Obama's interviewed more than two of the candidates for the job, including Diane P. Wood of the U.S. Court of Appeals for Chicago. His announcement could come next week, though sources say he will not be conducting interviews over his Memorial Day weekend retreat to Camp David. Judge Sonia Sotomayor is considered one of the front-runners of the list of judges (whittled down to 12 on May 1), though it's unclear if Obama has interviewed her. She would the court's first Hispanic judge.
