President Obama Nominates Elena Kagan to U.S. Supreme Court

Today President Obama nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court. This would make the fourth woman on the court system and the first time that three women sit on the bench of the high court at the same time.

Kagan has very limited time practicing before the court but has a history in the educational system as Dean of Harvard Law School. Elena Kagan is known to support a woman’s right to choose. She is well educated and has worked with presidents and vice presidents in the past.

The president would like to see his nominate confirmed before the August recess.
