Who will get Kennard's seat?

The DJ's Emily Green reports that multiple unnamed sources say that all the candidates for Justice Kennard's spot on the Supreme Court are Latino. Those in the running are reported to be 6th DCA Justice Miguel Márquez, federal district court judges Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers and Fernando Olguin, and law school deans John Trasvina (USF) and Rachel Moran (UCLA), and professor Mariano-Florentino Cuellar (Stanford).

Speaking of diversity on the Supreme Court, what about representation by Southern Californians? Judge Olguin and Dean Moran would at least fit that bill.
