Justice Elena Kagan

I know that there are those who loathe to do head counts on bodies like the Supreme Court, but I think there is something special about that body having (come the first Monday in October) three women. Ronald Reagan deserves a great deal of credit for expanding the pool of his choices to include a woman, and a woman, Sandra Day O'Connor, who proved to be a real asset to the Court.

Congratulations to Justice Elena Kagan, the fourth woman to ascend to the Supreme Court. I hope that her tenure on the Court is a good one, even when she renders opinions on which I don't agree.
