That's Kagan, Justice Elena Kagan
After enduring a barrage of nastiness by some on the right and other Republican-leaning pundits, Elena Kagan has been confirmed in a bi-partisan United States Senate vote to the Supreme Court, 63-37.
Kagan becomes the fourth female in 112 Supreme Court Justices. She also joins a distinguished list of past Supreme Court Justices like Earl Warren and William Rehnquist who did not have previous judicial experience.
Congratulations to Kagan and to President Barack Obama.
