Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan began her nomination process this week as she began her congressional hearings. Today the Harvard grad carefully responded to Republician questioning her record in an attempt to find a reason to block her nomination to the high court.
President Barack Obama’s nominee soldiered through her second day of testimony on Capitol Hill apparently in good shape to win Senate approval — barring a major gaffe — in time to take her seat before the court opens a new term in October. If confirmed, Kagan, 50, would succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.
The Senate Judicial committee called Kagan back Wednesday for a second and likely final day of questioning.
