Elena Kagan Nominated to SCOTUS

Ramesh and I talk about Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

Highlights:

0:30 – Will she be influential in winning the Supreme Court’s swing vote, Anthony Kennedy?

2:05 — Could Kagan be the liberal Harriet Miers? Is she not a reliable liberal firebrand?

3:45 — Any chance Kagan surprises Obama with her judicial ideology?

5:05 — I confront Ramesh with some of Kagan’s quotes that sound a lot like they’re coming from a libertarian originalist.

6:25 — Why would a liberal activist judge need to sound like an originalist?
