    Because she hasn't been a judge?

    That and the closeness to the President...huge difference though is this comes in an election year and anything on record for her or against her having to do with those two things could harm some of the Democrat and Republican Senators who are up for reelection if they go on record in favor of her while going against Meirs five years ago...

    She will never pass the Limbaugh litmus test for being pretty that is for sure..

    OTOH have read where there may not be as much opposition as others..


    But am sure there is something she wrote or did in her 50 years of life that will cause her to be a storm of controversy, stay tuned.

    That's cute considering the fact that she was nominated years earlier for the judge position Roberts ended up filling. Its a good thing the Democrats didn't pull the same delaying BS and instead permitted him a hearing and an actual vote. If the Democrats had acted like the Republicans wrt Roberts then nobody would be experienced because no seats would ever be filled. However I do think its at least bad form for you to call her out for a lack of bein' a judge when its your side that made that come about.

    She seems pretty good, we will soon start finding out about her if there is anything in her closet they will find it.

    Obama is the guy that can't be trusted "President Bullsh!t"

    Hey where were you yesterday? Some old vigilantie about 80 with white hair and a cap with FBI in gold letters started chasing me when i passed his decrepit azz. He was doing about 20 mph in a 35 mph zone, I passed even though there was a double yellow line. He put on his FBI cap and actually started doing the speed limit flashing his lights like he was pulling me over. (I think he was trying for a citizens arrest for illegal passing on your humble narrator) He chased me for four or five miles until i got into a seedy part of Holyoke (thats ALL of Holyoke) then he turned around.

    Anyways i think Kagan will make a fine justice and i doubt she has any skeletons in her closet.

    That wasn't me chasing you I wear a CIA hat.

    Kagan seems clean and qualified the only thing wrong with her that I can see right now is she is being picked by a guy who has some pretty Ratty friends and a guy who comes from the double dealing crooked Chicago Zoo, Obama is a phony liar, he is another GW Bush only worse.

    WHERE IS THE HOPE
    WHERE IS THE CHANGE

    AMERICA TODAY IS FAR WORSE OFF THEN IT WAS THREE YEARS AGO

    BRING THE TROOPS HOME
    OBAMA IS FULL OF SH!T

    She's an interesting choice, no judicial experience but has past connections with Larry Somers. She supports vast executive power among other things detailed in wiki. Elena Kagan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia People who know her say she's a real reflection of Obama.

    I can't attest to the validity of this site as it was linked from another but some of what it says is supported in wiki.

    EDIT: The Ninth Justice Journal has several articles about her, just scroll down: http://ninthjustice.nationaljournal.com/

    Alito got the seat she was nominated for. Roberts ended up getting the Chief Justice seat when Rehnquist died in the interim.

    I'm referring to Clinton nominating her for a DC circuit judge position in 99 and the Republicans ignoring that nomination through 2001 when Bush put Roberts up instead. Somehow the Republicans in the Senate found time to fit his hearing and vote in when they were unable:rolleyes: to do so with Kagen. As far as I know this is the only time she's ever been nominated for the big court.

    I thought you were talking about the big court not the court of appeals...

    The Democrats got their revenge after that, they held up numerous confirmations in retaliation so her incident was not unavenged by the Democrats.
