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.

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.
