With Flanigan out, who might be #2 at Justice?

As detailed in this AP account and this longer NY Times piece, Timothy Flanigan has withdrawn as a nominee to be deputy attorney general after his confirmation had bogged down because of his dealings with indicted Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff.  I am far too "outside the Beltway" to have any idea who might be nominated in Flanigan's place, but I do know that whomever assumes the #2 spot at DOJ could have a significant influence on the shape of the post-Booker world.
