    AP source: Obama chooses Kagan for Supreme Court

    "President Barack Obama will nominate Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court, a person familiar with the president's thinking said Sunday night."

    "Yet Kagan would be the first justice without judicial experience in almost 40 years. All of the three other finalists she beat out for the job are federal appeals court judges, and all nine of the current justices served on the federal bench before being elevated."

    This nominee has no experience on the bench, a potential problem for her confirmation. Of all the people that could have been picked, this is not the best. There is nothing substantial to grant her confirmation on. Why would the Obama administration choose someone without at least a little bit of experience on the bench?

    Her nomination should not be confirmed, she lacks the experience to serve on such an important seat.

    I wonder if this nomination is solely an identity politics ploy.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Thats right. And I'm sure whomever Bush picked you were overjoyed.

    I was wondering the same thing, she has no real paper trail in the judicial sense. This nomination could get very ugly.

    Re: AP source: Obama chooses Kagan for Supreme Court

    Why the hell would he pick someone for the Highest Court in the nation that has no experience as a Judge? Ugh, Im pretty sure I know the reason but I would love to to hear it from Obama himself. Hell Sotomayor had a ton of experience (which was one of the few good qualities about her).

    Perhaps to make people dislike this nominee so much they will all rally around another one? Maybe building support for a real nominee by strategy?

    Probably so because, if the wiki article is correct, she hadn't even argued before a trial court until less than a year ago.

    On top of that, she could be smacked for her stance of the military, indefinite detention and many other things.
