Referencing some of Elena Kagan’s earlier remarks about the confirmation hearing performances of Justices Ginsburg and Justice Breyer performances, Ed Morrissey contemplates what’s ahead for Kagan should she be confirmed for the Supreme Court:
[S]he called out justices [Ruth Bader] Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer — both Clinton appointees — for dodging tough questions. “I suspect that both appreciated that, for them (as for most), the safest and surest route to the prize lay in alternating platitudinous statement and judicious silence,” she wrote. (Here’s a link to the article.)
I’m sure that Ginsburg and Breyer can’t wait to meet up with their newest colleague when she gets confirmed after those comments. They’ll probably greet her with, er, platitudinous comments and judicious silence.
