|Description||This morning President Obama nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to be on the Supreme Court. But few people are talking about her qualifications. They only want to know if she's into the ladies. Let's look at the facts, shall we? |
Kagan has only been Solicitor General since last January; before that, she was the dean of Harvard Law School. She's never served as a judge before, which means she doesn't have a judicial record to consider. That also means her confirmation hearing is probably going to be dominated by rumor and speculation. The first and most obvious: Is she a lesbian? No one really knows for sure except Kagan (and her romantic partners, of course). But let's look at both sides of the question.
