What Would YOU Ask Elena Kagan?

Elena Kagan continues to make the rounds on Capitol Hill to lobby for her confirmation this summer. She’s met with several Democrats and some swing Senate Republicans in the days after her nomination. While Kagan lobbies, Senators get a chance to ask her questions before the formal confirmation hearings with the Judiciary Committee. But what if you were a Senator for one day, what question would you ask Elena Kagan?

A Former Solicitor General Weighs in on Elena Kagan Nomination

President Obama has chosen Elena Kagan as his Supreme Court nominee. If she were to be confirmed, she’d be the fifth former Solicitor General to later join the Court. The list includes Robert H. Jackson, Stanley Forman Reed, William Howard Taft and Thurgood Marshall.

Several experts note that if Mrs. Kagan were to be confirmed, she’d likely have to recuse herself from more than a dozen cases in the fall because of her work as Solicitor General. Thurgood Marshall had to recuse himself from about 57-percent of cases in his first year on the court.
