Obama to Nominate Elena Kagan

By on 5.9.10 | 10:22PM

NBC is reporting that, to no one's surprise, Barack Obama will announce tomorrow morning that he is nominating Solicitor General Elena Kagan to fill John Paul Stevens's seat on the Supreme Court. (I predicted it, but I don't claim any special insight -- pretty much everyone saw this coming.) As Tom Goldstein of SCOTUSblog wrote when he predicted Kagan's nomination in Februrary, "The last nominee about whose views we knew so little was David Souter."

Nonetheless, there is much to pick over in her relatively thin record. More on that tomorrow, and later in the week.
