  • You don't need experience being a judge, you need to be smart enought to interpret the constitution.

  • How can you confirm someone on an appointment to the Supreme Court when she has no judiciary record? She is to judge laws against the Constitution, yet you have no way of knowing what kind of jurist she is. This is not a happy day. Being a woman is inconsequential. That is a gender biased reason. It is the kind of person she is that matters. Her thoughts and opinions of which we know little except she is liberal.

    And this is why. They have lifetime appointments so they do not have to worry about political ramifications for their decisions. It's to keep them purely focused on law.

    Kagan is even more of a Constitutional enigma than Sotomayor! I think ALL members of SCOTUS should have term limits..it should no longer be a "lifetime" appointment.

    How do you know she's "smart?!" Do you have insider information about her political or Constitutional opinions/leanings?! Because if you do, then you know more than the Confirmation committee!!
