Sestak Rushes To Rubberstamp Kagan Choice
Joe Sestak sent this press release:
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Congressman Joe Sestak released the following statement today on President Obama's nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court:"I applaud President Obama's selection of Elena Kagan to serve as our next Supreme Court Justice. The President's background as a Constitutional law professor served him well in selecting Justice Sotomayor, and I believe it has again in this case. "Ms. Kagan's qualifications as both a respected legal mind who rose to be Dean of Harvard Law School and a key domestic policy adviser for President Bill Clinton, who helped formulate and implement policies in areas including education, crime and public health, will allow her to bring a breadth of experience to the bench.
[. . .] "Senator Specter has rightfully said that confirming nominees to the Supreme Court is one of the most important duties of a Senator. The people of Pennsylvania and this country deserve someone they can count on to be objective and act in the best interest of the nation -- not to exploit such an important process for their own political gain."
Joe Sestak's impulse to rubberstamp the President's choice puts his ability to carry out this function in serious doubt to me. I deplore his desrie to be the first to rubberstamp President Obama's choice of Elena Kagan. Bad show Rep. Sestak.
Speaking for me only
