Justice Scalia: "Happy" Kagan Is Not a Judge

One of the criticisms of President Obama's nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the United States Supreme Court, particularly from conservative quarters, focuses on the nominee's lack of judicial experience.

I previously noted that I think the absence of judicial experience is not a drawback (May 11). ABC News reports that in a speech in Washington, Justice Antonin Scalia, a conservative hero, stated that he is "happy" that Kagan is not a judge. The ABC report can be found here.
