Warner and Webb Vote to Confirm Elena Kagan


    I’m watching live on CSPAN as Elena Kagan is confirmed as the next Supreme Court justice. Both of Virginia’s U.S. Senators – Jim Webb and Mark Warner – have voted “aye.” While Warner’s vote was completely expected, Webb was listed as uncommitted – he reportedly had “2nd Amendment concerns” – leading up to the vote. I’m glad to see that he ended up voting the way he did on this one.

    UPDATE: Great news — Kagan has been confirmed by a vote of 63-37.

      “2nd Amendment concerns” but I’m sure those would have been easily resolved/put to rest. OTOH… Being put into the same category as Ben Nelson, was not to be thought of for someone as proudly honest as he is. So, no surprise for me.
