Kagan It Is!

You heard it first right here, on Friday.

In about 5 minutes, President Obama is expected to nominate Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court.  She would be the first justice with no judicial experience since Lewis Powell and William Rehnquist joined the court in 1972. 

She would bring to court experience gained as a clerk for Thurgood Marshall, Senate Judiciary Committee special counsel, Clinton administration official, law professor at the University of Chicago and Harvard Law School, and Harvard Law School dean.
