on May 10, 2010 at 12:23 am
This evening, as Tom confirmed earlier on this blog, NBC Newsâ€™ Pete Williams reported that President Obama will nominate Elena Kagan to succeed Justice Stevens as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.Â The Associated Press later confirmed this development as well, as did the New York Times, the Washington Post, CBS News, Politico, the Wall Street Journal, the Huffington Post, and CNN.Â ABC News, FOXNews, Reuters, Above the Law, the BLT, and the Chicago Sun-Times also have coverage of the Presidentâ€™s choice.
At the Washington Post, Robert Barnes has commentary on Kaganâ€™s background, as do Mark Sherman of the Associated Press, FOXNews, and NBCâ€™s Mark Murray.Â At the Atlanticâ€™s Night Beat column, Marc Ambinder previews the next steps for the Obama administration in the confirmation process, and finally, Gerard Magliocca argues that Kagan is a â€œlacklusterâ€ choice for the nomination at Concurring Opinions.
Weâ€™ll be linking to additional news and commentary on President Obamaâ€™s Supreme Court pick in the coming days, so stay tuned.
