Judiciary Committtee Approves Elena Kagan for Supreme Court
No surprise here, but the Senate Judiciary Committee has approved the nomination of Elena Kagan for Supreme Court Justice.
Newsweek reports that Lindsay Graham's support for Kagan kills any chance of a filibuster.
President Obama lauded the vote calling it a "bipartisan affirmation."
Today's vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee is a bipartisan affirmation of her strong performance during her confirmation hearings.
I think some would disagree with that characterization. I just wish he'd stop harping on the need for bi-partisanship and remember that Republicans didn't elect him, Democrats did, and it's not only okay to be partisan, it's what we expected when we voted for him -- change and all that.
