    Senate to confirm Kagan as court's 4th-ever woman

    Excerpted from “Senate to confirm Kagan as court's 4th-ever woman” By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS (AP) – 36 minutes ago
    Her confirmation assured, Elena Kagan is on the brink of becoming the fourth woman ever to serve as a Supreme Court justice.

    The Senate is set Thursday to confirm President Barack Obama's nominee, whose addition to the court will mark the first time three female justices have served concurrently. Nearly all Democrats, the Senate's two independents and a handful of Republicans are backing her.

    The vote is to be one of the Senate's last actions before its members depart for a monthlong vacation. …
    Bravo! Senate confirmation of Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court is another important accomplishment by President Barack Obama.
    “Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible.” — Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001

    Final vote was 63-37, not even close.

    And another activist liberal sits on the highest court. I don't know which is worse, Kagan's inexperience or Sotomayor's incompetence...

    it would have been 99-0 if the dems hadn't played games with Bork, Thomas, Roberts and Alito

    it was the dems who started this partisan nonsense

    no matter what anyone says, there is no argument that Roberts and Alito were far more qualified than Kagan. Yet the puke Obama and many other dems voted against those two.

    which is why I said under the 1985 standard Kagan was clearly qualified but under the 2005 standard she was not.

    I love how some conservatives always blame others for their actions.

    so after Obama voted against a guy who not only had been a judge but was rated by all the relevant sources as one of the top 3 or 4 supreme court advocates in the country, a guy that was rated as one of the top ten minds to attend HLS in the decade, the GOP should have voted for somone who had O judicial experience and less than 2 years of supreme court practice?
