Elena Kagan

You're going to here many critiques of Elena Kagan as a Supreme Court nominee. One that is bound to have some traction is that she has never served as a judge before. Well, neither did William Rehnquist.

Personally, I'm not sure what I think. A lot of people on the left seem to think she is a compromise candidate. I certainly want the most liberal justice Obama can get through. She doesn't seem to be the most liberal that was on the supposed short list. Could any of the others get confirmed?

Maybe more on this later if I have time to do some reading.

UPDATE: When he named Kagan as his nominee this morning Obama mentioned that she is a fan of The Hated New York Mets. All Senators should weigh this sobering fact appropriately.
