BISMARCK (AP) — Sen. Byron Dorgan said he will vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.
The North Dakota Democrat said he believes Kagan has all of the necessary academic, legal and governmental qualifications.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Her confirmation all but assured, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan neared the end of a final grueling day of Senate questioning Wednesday, fielding GOP challenges on abortion, gays in the military and other divisive issues while sidestepping Democrats’invitations to blast conservative decisions by the court she's hoping to join.
We are told by no less than President Barack Obama and supporters of his nominee to the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan, that she “loves the law.”
I love my cat, but what does loving the law mean for the court, for the law and for the public?
What is the law? Is it a game played by insiders who went to Harvard (or Yale) law schools and the intellectual equivalent of theological debates over how many angels can dance on the head of a pin? Or is it something else, and if something else, what?

Introducing his Supreme Court nominee to the nation, President Barack Obama on Monday portrayed Elena Kagan as a guiding force for a fractured court and a champion of typical Americans. She would be the youngest justice on the court and give it three women for the first time in history.
