NPR: Biden considering Merrick Garland, Sally Yates, Deval Patrick, Doug Jones for Attorney General.

Sally Yates and Doug Jones come to mind.

BREAKING: Merrick Garland could be Biden's attorney general
Gotta admit Attorney General Merrick Garland would be delicious irony. Would love to see Republicans explain voting "no." NPR also naming outgoing-Senator Doug Jones (who sadly lost to that goof in Alabama), Deval Patrick and Sally Yates as possibilities. https://t.co/VID6i7wL0Z

Merrick Garland was a middle of the road compromise. We need another strong woman to balance the court.
