It's Elena Kagan for SCOTUS

So, President Obama has nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan [left] for the Supreme Court.

As the above New York Times pic shows, the Obama Administration sees a vulnerability in her record as Harvard Law School Dean on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," although this may provide a needed "push" to exercise Presidential leadership with Congress to repeal the policy this year.

We would hope that, if confirmed, Ms. Kagan would appreciate the sacrifices of real people in the service of our country, and how all are served when institutions of civil society engage even when it may make them feel uncomfortable, rather than disengage just to feel better.
