Elena Kagan to SCOTUS - great nominee for Obama
President Obama will nominate U S Solicitor General, Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. She is ideal for him, unfortunately.
He wants a nominee who is a 1) guaranteed liberal, who will be 2) nominated easily in this election year, and who will be 3) able to woo Justice Kennedy, the "swing vote".
1) Poor as he is at vetting in other areas, Obama would never have named her solicitor general if he were not sure she is his kind of liberal. 2) Kagan has an incredibly sparse paper trail. Even conservatives speak well of her. 3) Kagan has the cv, the aura, and the personality to be much more powerful with Kennedy than Sotomayor.
Please contact Senator Brown. Tell him the Republicans must fight her nomination because she is extremely liberal on the social issues, has no background to show that she is qualified for the Court, and because the Republicans must fight everything the president puts forward this election year.

We must keep the pressure on so that people are ready for serious change in November! Thank you for all you do. Anne
