She Doesn’t Have To Win You Over, You Have No Place To Go
From my favorite political scientist (who lists an outdated place of employment in his post bio)[see update], Can Kagan Win Over Liberals?:
Recently, I argued that President Barack Obama should take advantage of the unusually favorable political situation to appoint a strong, proven liberal to replace John Paul Stevens. With the nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan, one thing we know is that this opportunity has been squandered. What we don’t know is much about the contours of her judicial philosophy. The best that can be hoped for now is that Kagan will be able to assuage some of the justified doubts that some progressives have about her nomination at her confirmation hearings.
I doubt she is very concerned about you. Neither is Rahm.
Can you say “public option”?
Update: He obviously reads my blog, because his bio now is updated.
