WASHINGTON (AP) — Michigan Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm, a potential candidate for the Supreme Court, thinks it’s a smart idea for President Obama to consider someone who isn’t a judge now.

Ms. Granholm has a law degree from Harvard, worked as a federal prosecutor in Detroit and was Michigan’s attorney general.

She told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that she thinks “it’s a very wise move” to consider a potential nominee from outside “the judicial monastery.” Ms. Granholm also mentioned Janet Napolitano, a former Arizona governor who’s now the homeland security secretary.

Justice John Paul Stevens is retiring at the end of the court’s current term. Justice Stevens and the eight other justices all were federal appeals court judges before joining the high court.
