President Barack Obama this weekend will begin thumbing through resumes for a potential successor to conservative Supreme Court icon Antonin Scalia, aides said on Friday. The White House said Obama's legal advisors have drawn up biographies of possible justices, along with assorted briefs, opinions and other reading material. "The president's team, over the course of this week, has spent a lot of time preparing materials for the president's review and I would expect, over the weekend, that the president will begin to dig into the materials," said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.
