History Made as Kagan Becomes Nation's First Female Solicitor General

On Thursday, March 19, Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan was confirmed as the nation's first female solicitor general of the United States. Kagan, confirmed on a 61-31 vote, once clerked for Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and taught with President Obama at the University of Chicago Law School during the 1990s. She is rumored to be a possible Obama pick to fill any Supreme Court vacancy that may occur during his administration. For a closer look at Kagan's record and speculation that she may one day be nominated to the Supreme Court, read Manu Raju's piece in Politico.
