Obama’s SCOTUS nominee, Elana Kagan, is like Harriet Miers in some respects. She’s a very accomplished woman, but she’s under-accomplished for a Supreme Court Justice. Kagan has never sat on the bench and she’d never even argued a case before the Supreme Court before she became Obama’s Solicitor General.

Worse yet, she has some ugly baggage. Hilariously, given the events of recent months, Kagan spent 3 years on an advisory board for Goldman Sachs. However, much more significantly, Kagan banned military recruiters from Harvard over Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. We’re at war and Obama’s picking a judge who’s hostile to the troops? For someone who supported and respected the troops, a nominee like Kagan would be a non-starter. The GOP should come back to that issue again and again during the confirmation hearings.

Read the whole thing.
