Not My First Choice

I said it before when the shoe was on the other foot, and I still firmly believe, that barring some clear lack of credentials or temperament, the president should get his way when it comes to the appointment of federal judges. Granted, being dean of Harvard Law School is not nearly as prestigious as, say, being mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, but then again Elena Kagan’s just a Supreme Court nominee. So, unless lurking in her past is some gross misdemeanor akin to commenting about a pubic hair on a Coke can, I think she is, and should be, a shoo-in.

Republican senators should just let this one go to avoid looking needlessly obstructionist. Get in a few quick digs on her opposition to military recruiting, and then just hope the other eight members of the Court eat well and exercise. At least for the next three years.
