Elena Kagan will be the next justice on the supreme court. I'm not sure what to think. Yay, she'll likely be more progressive than the balance of the court; boo, she probably won't be as progressive as Stevens was. We'll see. An NPR reporter tapped Anthony Kennedy (swing vote, now that O'Connor has been replaced by conservative Alito) as the next justice to go. Here's to hoping nobody does anything stupid, like overturning yesterday's Prop 8 decision.
Ok, I admit it. I felt compelled to post something because I have a tag for SCOTUS. I haven't been following the hearings and didn't even know the vote was today. But I'm mostly pleased with the outcome.
