Kagan Sworn In to Supreme Court

History has been made: Elena Kagan, former Harvard Law School dean and most recently President Obama's solicitor general, has been sworn in to replace Justice John Paul Stevens on the United States Supreme Court. Kagan will be the fourth woman ever to serve on the court and will join two sitting female judges, Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As friends and family looked on, a beaming Kagan took the oath to uphold the law faithfully and impartially. Despite Republican criticisms of her judicial "activism," Kagan sailed through the confirmation vote this week, winning over the Senate with a 63-to-37 vote.
