Elena Kagan: A Supreme Court ‘Go’ In the Senate (Update: She’s Confirmed)

Elena Kagan is expected today to be confirmed as the Supreme Court 112th justice, and its third unmarried woman with no kids. It also means the beginning of sleepness nights for Sen. Jeff Sessions. Update: The Senate confirmed her in a 63-37 vote, with just five Republicans signing on board including Sen. Lindsey Graham; Sen. Scott Brown did not. Nebraska’s Sen. Ben Nelson was the only Democrat to vote against her.
