President-elect Joe Biden has not yet announced a candidate for Attorney General, the chief attorney who represents the government before the Supreme Court. Amy Howe, presenter of SCOTUStalk, and Katie Barlow, media editor of SCOTUSblog, discuss possible tips. The next attorney general could be a Washington insider, or it could be someone unexpected – like Elena Kagan, who had never quarreled in the Supreme Court when President Barack Obama selected her as attorney general in 2009. The two also discuss who that could be on the shortlist for a Supreme Court nomination if a judge retires in the coming year.
