Surprising Reactions To Obama's High Court Nominee
Elena Kagan, tapped by President Obama on Monday to replace the retiring Justice John Paul Stevens, now heads into the confirmation process. But -- she has little for the Senate Judiciary Committee to scrutinize. She has never served as a judge, and the collection of her academic writings is slim. This absence of material leaves liberals, like University of Colorado law professor Paul Campos, worried about where she will stand on the key issues expected to come before the court in the coming years. Meanwhile, this uncertainty, and her past warmth toward conservatives, gives some on the right hope. Conservative UCLA law professor Stephen Bainbridge believes Kagan is the best nominee Republicans could hope for from Obama. Both Professors Campos and Bainbridge join guest host Allison Keyes to talk about their positions on Kagan.
