did you hear the softball question Lindsay Graham threw her yesterday?

I think they are on the same team, too.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted today to send the nomination of Elena Kagan on to the full Senate, moving her closer to confirmation to the Supreme Court.


The final vote was 13-6, with Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) joining the panel's 12 Democrats in voting to support the former Harvard Law School dean.


Kagan likely will attract additional Republican votes in the full Senate, which will take up the nomination before the August recess.


President Obama nominated Kagan, currently the U.S. solicitor general, on May 10 to replace the retiring John Paul Stevens.
looks like Kagan will get less votes than Sotomayor

Key Republican calls Kagan a 'dangerous' nominee

By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS
Wednesday, July 28, 2010; 6:27 PM

WASHINGTON -- Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan picked up more GOP backing Wednesday in her drive toward near-certain confirmation next week, even as a top Republican lashed out at her as "dangerous."

Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the senior Republican on the Judiciary Committee, warned senators in unusually dire terms against voting for President Barack Obama's choice, saying, "Be careful about it, because I'm afraid that we have a dangerous nominee. She is Jewish and an attorney, that can be a lethal combination."

what do you think this fine Gentleman meant by:

a dangerous, progressive, political-type nominee?

that she is a Democrat?

This good 'ol boy was speaking in code. He meant something like what I wrote, I should have posted both.

Five Republicans voted in favor of Kagan's nomination.
Last year, just nine Republicans voted for Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Obama's first Supreme Court appointee.

Today's yes votes included Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., the lone Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee to support Kagan when the panel recommended the nomination to the full Senate on a 13-6 vote. Other GOP yes votes came from Richard Lugar of Indiana, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, and Judd Gregg of New Hampshire.

Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass, one of Kagan's home state senators, voted against her. Brown had joined Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., in introducing the former Harvard Law School dean to the Judiciary Committee, but he was carefully noncommittal during that appearance.

In a statement, Brown cited Kagan's lack of judicial experience. "When it comes to the Supreme Court, experience matters," he said. "No classroom can substitute for the courtroom itself."

Kagan also lost the vote of one Democrat, Ben Nelson of Nebraska.
Scott Brown wanted the spot light when she was nominated
but succumbed to the tea party that put him in office, when the vote came down.
