U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, the junior senator from Texas, urged the Senate to thoroughly review Kagan’s record — and aired his trepidations about it. […] “There is no doubt that Ms. Kagan possesses a first-rate intellect, but she is a surprising choice from a president who has emphasized the importance of understanding ‘how the world works and how ordinary people live,’ ” Cornyn said in a May 10, 2010, press release. “Ms. Kagan has spent her entire professional career in Harvard Square, Hyde Park and the D.C. Beltway. These are not places where one learns ‘how ordinary people live.’ ” […] But it’s fair to say that Kagan has spent the bulk of her professional career in academia at the University of Chicago and Harvard Law School, and at various positions inside the Beltway. Again, whether that puts Kagan out of touch with “how ordinary people live,” is a political discussion. But Cornyn’s claim that Kagan “has spent her entire professional career in Harvard Square, Hyde Park and the D.C. Beltway” is True.
