    bachman and tancredo hardly represent the republican party

    have you heard some of the things former dnc dean has been saying, does he represent the party in power?

    did you see anthony wiener go off last week, is he the donkey's poster boy?

    This was going to happen any way She doesn't change the balance of the court either. She's a liberal replacing a liberal. However, I hope she will be more logical and less bias than her predecessor. Who knows? Maybe she will surprise us all and rule according to Law and not according to her politics. I think we should reserve judgement until we have seen her ruling on issues.

    Getting O to actually do his job is an accomplishment, think of the golf he is missing.

    she also has the lowest approval rating across the electorate (44%) of any confirmee since as far back as gallup will go

    Americans Favor Confirming Kagan to High Court, 44% to 34%

    Wow, 44 percent already? LOL

    Another abortion of an appointment by the party of Al Franken. Dems will vote for anything.

    Just to clarify a point you seem to be totally confused on: her approval rating is entirely irrelevant to anything. She won appointment, and will be a judge until she decides to retire.

    Nice try at making a point, but it didn't work.

    part of what's bothering those who are troubled by ms kagan's selection (record numbers of americans and opposition senators), aside from her rather extreme views on partial birth abortion, gay marriage, military recruitment and her totally bizarre statement about banning books, is her propensity to look at legal questions thru an activist political lens, with a sharp focus on media reaction

    In Elena Kagan's e-mails, politics often trumps policy - USATODAY.com

    this politics-first approach, coupled with her lack of bench time, causes concern to many

    referring to her boss, president clinton, sometime between 1996 and 1998, ms kagan wrote, "hasn't anyone told him not to believe our soundbites?"

    if she doesn't believe her own talking points, why should anyone else?

    To the Republicans - Don't be hypocrites. Although you are lambasting Kagan's nomination because she has no judicial experience, that did not stop a lot of you from supporting Meiers.

    But, I do understand where both sides are coming from, and it all goes according to the following definition:

    I don't remember supporting Meyers.
