Elena Kagan for SCOTUS

WOW! Princeton, Oxford, Harvard Law, clerk for Thurgood Marshall, Clinton's Counsel Office, first female dean of Harvard Law School, first female Solicitor General, and now only the 4th woman nominated for the Supreme Court. Impressive! Rock on Elena!

Oh yeah, and she's only 50 years old. Makes me feel like SUCH a slacker! (And she's Jewish, which of course I love - there are alread SIX Catholics on the the Court.)

She's never served as a judge. There's plenty of precedent for Supremes not having that experience, but not in the last few decades. This is one of several objections that will be raised, but she is expected to be confirmed, hopefully before the Congressional break in July.
