Elena Kagan

See the video of the Elena Kagan Confirmation hearing below.

Elena Kagan is expected to be confirmed for a seat on the United States Supreme Court and the confirmation hearings begin today. Kagan, barring any unforeseen developments, will replace the retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. The change is not expected to upset the ideological make up of the Court as Stevens was generally one of the more liberal members of the Court, and Kagan is expected to follow along those lines.

So, feel free to leave your thoughts. Does anyone really even care about the Elena Kagan confirmation hearings these days? Would there be more interest if the hearings actually weren’t just senators speaking on and on, trying to score points with the cameras? The nominees really don’t answer the questions either because they don’t want to run the risk of disqualifying themselves from a future case by being accused of pre-judging the case. So, all in all it seems like this is just a formality, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter.
