Well, President Obama has nominated his second Supreme Court justice, Elena Kagan.
She has never been a judge before–is that an asset or a liability?
Rather, she is an academic, the former dean of Harvard Law–is that an asset or a liability?
She has also been a government official and presidential advisor, currently serving as the Solicitor General–is that an asset or a liability?
As Dean, she refused to allow military recruiters at the law school, due to the military’s policies about gays.
Should Republicans in the Senate fight her nomination, or let the president have his way?
