Mid-Afternoon Roundup

In a 13-6 Senate Judiciary Committee vote (with Senator Lindsay Graham voting in support), Elena Kagan, Obama's Supreme Court nominee, won approval by the Committee for confirmation. This is the first time that three women will be on the bench (out of nine justices). How's that for progress? Go Elena!

From the NY Times:

If Ms. Kagan, 50, is confirmed by the full senate, as expected, she would be the fourth woman to serve on the high court, and the only member of the current court not to reach it from a position on the federal appellate bench.

Amazing. I can't wait to see what she'll do as Supreme Court Justice. Obama definitely made a fine pick.

Quick Hit:

Just found an interesting blog post by the daughter of an abortion provider. Check it out.
