    I'm going to be intrigued by this for no other reason to watch both the left and the right. Many on this board complained about Mier's first and foremost due to her having no experience judging and it basically being a pick seemingly because Bush liked the woman. Others defended it that you don't need to be a judge to be experienced. Though I will say, in the case of Miers, more of the conservatives/republicans on this forum were unhappy with the pick at the time than you would expect with most picks.

    First glance, I'm thinking this is a very poor pick. I'm also thinking it may very well be a "Miers-esque" type of rope-a-dope
    I don't recall commenting on this when Harriet Myers was nominated, but let me just say that at least Kagan has Princeton and Harvard Law degrees, which means she is a very intelligent lady. Harriet Myers did not have the intellectual capacity to be a Supreme Court justice, in my opinion.

    I really don't know what to make of Obama's pick. My father personally knows Kagan and thinks she's a great pick. I need to pick his brain about why she would make a good Supreme Court justice.

    Sadly, I believe you are right, but solely because the Democrats have such a large majority in the Senate, it would be difficult for the Republicans to sustain sufficient opposition for an extended period of time, even if the committee hearings reveal that such opposition is highly warranted...

    Yes anyone who doesn't agree lock-step with Obama and you, are fakes. We know.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Ya ever notice how close to Navy Pride this statement of yours was. Seems a lot like his "left-wing friend" bit he calls anyone who disagrees with him.
