Maybe Kagan is no Lady Gaga when it comes to fashion. But for most Americans, the way Kagan outfits herself is just fine. What's in her mind and her heart are far more important than what's on her back, neck, or her ring finger.
The nomination of Elena Kagan to replace John Paul Stevens as a Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court is historic. The great thing about a historic first is that it begins the process of transforming what came before into an outdated anachronism.
There is nothing in the record to suggest that Elena Kagan spoke against the military, and everything to suggest that she went out of her way to defend the anti-discrimination policy and to welcome veterans.
