    What makes a difference in this situation to me I'm not sure how to explain in this situation. The best I can say that we have a lot have lot of career minded people from Alito to Roberts to Kagan going for this position. I really do not mind Kagan compared to the other two
    I don't think Kagan is anywhere near those two in terms of qualifications. Akhil Reed Amar certainly is as is Pam Karlan. Amar is the best constitutional scholar in the world right now. Karlan is considered one of the best appellate brief writers in the USA. Kagan has no reputation other than being a decent dean at Harvard. NOthing substantive in terms of scholarship or advocacy

    I disagree, being dean at Harvard is no small potato nor is being solicitor general.

    the first has no relevance to being a supreme court justice
    the second depends on what she had done
    do you follow appellate jurisprudence?> I do and Kagan isn't exactly in the same league as Paul Clement
