Supreme Court Pick Appears Imminent

More

UPDATE: Marc reports the choice is Kagan, to be announced Monday morning.


President Obama will announce his Supreme Court nominee "very soon," Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday on Meet the Press, and most--Holder included, it appears--expect the president to pick Solicitor General Elena Kagan.

So, as we wait for Obama to make his decision public, here's a roundup of what we've written on Kagan and the SCOTUS selection process so far:

  • Carrie Severino of the conservative Judicial Crisis Network says Kagan has been tight-lipped throughout her career, giving the right few public statement to attack her with.
  • When Kagan was bandied as a possible pick last year, Judicial Crisis Network produced a web video attacking her as an academic peacenik opposed to the military. (This was part of an attack website that also went after Sotomayor and Diane Wood.)
