Supreme Court potential nomination:

One potential nominee for the post vacated when Scalia passed away: federal appeals Judge Sri Srinivasan.

Srinivasan, a former clerk for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, would be the first Hindu and the first Asian American on the U.S. Supreme Court if he were nominated and confirmed, the Washington Post reports in a story about the Hindu faith. He was born in India and moved with his family to the United States as a child. He was sworn into the federal appeals court on the Bhagavad-Gita, a Hindu holy book.
