Who the hell is she and what has she done to get this nomination?

I'm gonna wait on Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity to tell me.

"Who the hell is she and what has she done to get this nomination?"

A former Dean of Harvard Law school to start with. And she's actually argued several cases before the court itself. She was reputed to have been on Obama's short list the day after Stevens announced his retirement. And she's not a judge currently nor has she ever been one.

I love him. Did you see the game he had on Saturday? He should be nominated for Supreme Court, although his dad was a Yankee.

What does this have to do with anything???? How about addressing her qualifications (or lack of, if that is your position) for the job at hand. My understanding is that we are not talking about something important like, say Miss America, where 'buzzard mugs' are frowned upon and important personal attributes like empty heads that generate nonsense are embraced. (and what is wrong with me that I read and respond to this kind of stupid crap anyway.)

I'm really disappointed that the first qualification a woman candidate for the supreme court would be her appearance. I can't remember a single male judicial candidate who was thought to be qualified because of his looks. Criticize her on her positions or her qualifications, but please don't criticize anyone because of what they look like. It's very demeaning to women in general....sort of saying, if a woman doesn't look good she has no value in society.

Some interesting quotes from Senator Leahy:

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, said Monday that Kagan is a "superb nominee" who is "the best this country can offer."

"She will be confirmed," he predicted. He dismissed likely GOP criticism of the choice, telling Capitol Hill reporters that Obama "could nominate Moses the lawgiver" and still face Republican opposition.

Leahy put a positive spin on Kagan's lack of experience on the federal bench. All nine current members of the Supreme Court previously served as federal appellate judges.

"I have said before I would like to see someone from outside the judicial monastery," he said, noting that justices such as Earl Warren, William Rehnquist, and Sandra Day O'Connor did not serve on the federal bench before being named to the high court.

Well Robert Bork was ugly and he didn't get confirmed, so there is a male precedent.

I guess in Luke's world Pamela Anderson would be a great justice, as long as she's a Republican.

Does anyone honeslty think Leahy would criticize the pick?

The radical right is even criticizing the fact that she didnt learn to drive until her 20's. Get ready...the party of NO is going to throw everything they can at this nomination. She could be Jesus Christ and the obstructionism would be grand. Look at the quality of the criticisms and you will see what I mean.

Of course not, I just found some of his comments comical. And that he noted that this nominee isn't the first that didn't have experience on the bench.

I like that she was a law clerk to Justice Thurgood Marshall; that is the best preparation for how the Court works. Apparently, however, she has little to no courtroom experience prior to beicomng Solicitor General. She is the first non-judge to be appointed since Nixon's Rehnquist choice. Not who I would have picked, but she does appear to be a wise non-latina woman!

Personally, Im open to her nomination BUT I would have really preferred someone who had been a judge prior.

I'm assuming people know that the Constitution establishes no requirements for a person to be appointed to the Supreme Court.

True, but that does not mean that everyone is competent or that there should not be some minimum expected level of qualifying experience.

I agree....I'm just saying that serving as a judge isn't a qualification for the nomination and from what I've read so far, she seems to meet a 'miminum expected level of qualifying experience.'

Yep. If she's not qualified it will come out in the confirmation hearings, but I don't foresee any issues.
