Elena Kagan’s a bit of a blank slate. Larry Lessig thinks she’ll be a powerful negotiator and advocate who can bring different groups together, plus they shared an opera subscription. Glenn Greenwald thinks we could do a hell of a lot better and that progressives need to make this our Harriet Miers moment. (Kagan, of course, is slightly more qualified than Miers, who was just on the faculty at Harvard, not the Dean.)
All of this is dwarfed by burning question that will dominate all known forms of media for the next few weeks: is Kagan teh ghey?
