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.
