Obama's challenge: Selecting a truly diverse justice

Supreme Court diversity could mean many different things to President Barack Obama, if he wanted it to. The Supreme Court, for instance, has never had a Latino justice, an Asian-American justice or an openly gay justice. None of the current justices has disabilities. None of the current justices has ever held elected office. Potential candidates exist in each category, if Obama wants to opt for one.
