We talk to two conservative legal experts about Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, and listen to their opposing opinions on two issues that are sure to have critics talking: the banning of military recruiters at Harvard's Law School Office of Career Services, and Kagan's role in the Citizens United case.

Edward Whalen, president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center is a lawyer and a former law clerk to Supreme Court justice, Antonin Scalia. He objects to Kagan's nomination. Charles Freid, professor at Harvard Law School, was the Solicitor General of the United States under President Reagan and sees Kagan from a different perspective.
