Kagan Expected to be Nominated to Supreme Court This Morning
CNN is reporting that President Obama is expected to name Solicitor General Elena Kagan as his nominee to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court by mid-morning today. "Her confirmation hearings for the solicitor general job could offer a preview of what she can expect from both Democrats and Republicans. Many saw it as a dress rehearsal of sorts for a high court job." She was confirmed by a 61-31 vote.
