Senate Set to Confirm Elena Kagan

Thursday’s big news: The Senate is set to confirm Elena Kagan as the nation’s next Supreme Court justice. Nearly all Democrats, both Independents, and some Republicans are expected to vote for her. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, for one, can’t wait for her arrival: "To me, it's one of the most exhilarating developments," she said of the possibility of three women sitting on the Court.
