Elena Kagen will be sworn in as the nations 112th Supreme Court justice. Kathy Kiely writes for USA Today that
"[t]he 63-37 vote was a victory for President Obama, who has doubled the number of women ever named to the Supreme Court with his first two nominees.
"I am confident that Elena Kagan will make an outstanding Supreme Court justice," Obama said in Chicago, where he was traveling. "And I am proud, also, of the history we're making with her appointment."
Mazal Tov, Elena! We look forward to your work along side of Supreme Court justices Bader Ginsburg and Sotomayor.
