Around the White House, some refer to it as the "guts option." Others call it crazy. At first glance, the decision in question would not appear to merit either label, for it involves nominating to the Supreme Court one of the nation's most highly esteemed federal judges, a noted legal scholar and writer whose work has been praised by admirers ranging from conservative writer William F. Buckley to liberal former Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan Jr.

Selection of a new Supreme Court justice to replace the retiring Harry A. Blackmun "won't be long," President Clinton said Thursday, as aides predicted that the announcement would come early next week. As has usually been the case, Clinton's selection process has taken somewhat longer than his aides had predicted. Shortly after Blackmun announced his resignation last month, White House Counsel Lloyd N. Cutler told reporters that a decision would be made before the end of April.

The Great Mentioner is at it again. This time it's about who shall be nominated by President Clinton to fill the seat of Supreme Court Justice Harry M. Blackmun, who will step down later this year. Already the White House has dribbled out half a dozen plausible names. Whether any particular person on the list is a genuine candidate or merely for show isn't clear.

President Clinton delayed the expected announcement of his Supreme Court nominee Thursday, stirring concern among some Senate Democrats that Clinton is backing away from Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt as his choice. Instead of presiding over an anticipated Rose Garden ceremony, Clinton appeared before television cameras to explain that he needed to extend the 36-day-old search to replace Justice Harry A. Blackmun.

FILLING THE BENCH: Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt, who President Clinton almost named to the Supreme Court last summer, is once again under serious consideration. Well-placed Administration sources say a decision could come early this week. . . . One reason that Babbitt has moved up in contention is that interest in federal appeals court Judge Richard S.

President Clinton on Wednesday sounded out senators about a Supreme Court nomination of Bruce Babbitt, amid signs that he may end a five-week search today by choosing among the Interior secretary and federal judges Richard S. Arnold and Stephen G. Breyer.
