Cutler said both Mitchell and
Babbitt were prospects but also said
Clinton's working list would "prob-
ably reach double digits. ... I think it
really has to be a true search."
From his comments, it was clear
the White House had done research
on any possible roadblocks to nam-
ing a sitting senator to the court.
Cutler left open the possibility that
Mitchell could remain a member of
Congress after being confirmed by
the Senate. He added, "How politi-

people disagree about abortion, they
will disagree about the legacy of retir-

day from reactions by activists on
both sides of the abortion issue to

will leave the court at the end of the

activists, his memory will be revered.
He is truly a hero," said Carol King,
executive director of the Michigan
Abortion Rights Action League.
"He is a giant and he is one of the
few men of his generation who 'got

State Rep. Mary Schroer (D-Ann

"Alma is someone who doesn't let

she did not run for the position herself
because she wants to continue work-
