Glimpses Into the Life of Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan has carefully guarded her professional and personal lives, especially since being nominated for the Supreme Court earlier this week. To get a fuller picture of the woman who could become one of the nine justices, we talk with two people who knew her as a colleague, a teacher, and a baseball fan, during her time at the University of Chicago Law School from 1991 - 1995.

Richard Badger is an assistant dean at the University of Chicago Law School. He used to attend White Sox games with Kagan. And Carolyn Shapiro was a student of Kagan's when she taught law at the University of Chicago.

First thing: As a displaced New Yorker (and I mean really from the big 5!) I appreciate the candor and insight that reminds me of the Big City.
As to what I would ask Elena Kagan - I wonder what her feelings are about plastic corks in wine bottles.
Because everything else I don't want to know until it comes up for a judgment ... right?

I agree with Jim, unfortunately. Wish show were at least at another time -- like in the afternoon. It's not consistently substantive enough for morning fare, when we really need news, not personalities drooling over themselves.

Who cares about Elena Kagan's softball playing? Talk about something substantive.Your show is completely inane, and I frequently complain to my local station for carrying it at all, let alone during a prominent timeslot. Your show is an embarrassment.
