WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama will nominate U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan to serve as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, NBC News’ Pete Williams reported late Sunday night.

Kagan, 50, served as the Dean of Harvard Law School from 2003 to 2009. Obama nominated her to serve in her current post as solicitor general early in 2009, and she won Senate confirmation by a vote of 61-31. She is the first woman to serve as solicitor general of the United States.

“She ticks all the radical left boxes.”

That she does. Let’s see if her being a lesbian gets discussed - although I doubt it.

Another East Coast Ivy Leaguer. I was rooting for the judge from Montana.

Of course...but will they be willing to discuss it?

Obama talked about justices knowing how their ruling effects “ordinary people,” but I don’t know of any nominee who has less “real world” experience. With the exception of three years as an associate at a politically connected D.C. law firm, she has spent her entire adult life either in academia or government. Also, although technically a lawyer, she has never tried a case in court.

It's part of "the plan". When she starts to get deep sixed on her actual views, the leftists will trot this out and call anyone dis-agreeing with her as hateful and bigot's, and blah, feh...

With this pick, you knew Obama wanted to go with Nappy-head, but that choice would come under fire in the committee hearing. She’s got all the qualities of Janet Napolitano. She’s fat, she’s a lesbo, she’s ugly, she’s a lawyer, and she’s a loon.

The problem is her Senate confirmation will be much easier because she is relatively unknown. The military thing will really be the only strong mark against her.

This is bad news...she will sail through confirmation.

Repubs won't stop her....hell, they won't even rough her up, like they do to ours.

Even when the Dems know they will lose they ruin the reputations of court nominees.

Unfortunately the Right hasn't any men of strength or caliber to fight the commies.

Not only the Lib twins; there are several "centrist" (or at least they will have you believe that) Democrats in the Senate who are being scrutinized by an angry electorate who may not want to approve a fruit-cake ultra-liberal like Kagan, for their career's sake.

There are few real conservatives that will team up to fight this nomination. Most are the go-along kind like Lugar and Voinovich.

I’m thinking that maybe Obama isn’t really serious about getting her to the court, but rather having her take the arrows for the next nominee, who will also be a lesbo. At that point, the people will be worn down and say something like: “at least she doesn’t look like one”.

Similar trick to what New York City did when they wanted to raise the subway fare - they said it would go from 75 cents to $1.25...everyone screamed - so they backed down and only raised it to $1.00 (LOL). The public was relieved...that was a close one.

Served as Dean, or went by the name Dean?
