Granholm for Supreme Court?

Gov. Jennifer Granholm is already one of the names being bandied about for the US Supreme Court seat of Justice John Paul Stevens. It does fit in well with her schedule -- she is term-limited out of the governor seat. And she is a loyal, liberal Democrat and a lawyer and former state prosecutor. Beyond that though, what is she bringing to the table? She comes from a state that is at the bottom economically. It was also at the bottom when she started her two terms as governor and it is even further down at the end. Is that a qualification to be a top judge for the nation? Let's hope this is another case of always a bridesmaid, never a bride.
