Rosen: Apply the "Kagan Standard" To Kagan

Jeff Rosen writes:

In an academic article she will no doubt most regret, Kagan laid out what conservatives are already calling the “Kagan standard,” insisting that senators should question Supreme Court nominees closely. The Kagan standard is well worth applying to Elena Kagan [. . .]

Speaking for me only

    discussions must've brought this up...surely somebodymentioned it!  So...it will be interesting to see the varied responses from insiders and leakers re whether it was dismissed as an issue in a cavalier manner or whether the White House and nominee have agreed to their talking points, including on this issue.

    What could she possibly say to duck her own issue?  "I've changed my mind!?!"

    Well, I suppose.
