This morning President Obama nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to fill Justice Stevens’ slot on the US Supreme Court. Story here.
This will be a big news story for the next month or so. We will be hearing lots and lots and lots of discussion of Ms. Kagan’s background and if she is up for the job. The Regimen did a podcast last summer during the end of Justice Sotomayer’s confirmation hearings, and we think our general disdain for this whole circus is still applicable.
