C-SPAN Interviews Justice Kagan

Very much worth watching.

Also of note, Mike Sacks makes an argument that I’ve alluded to in a few posts: The interesting parallels between Kagan and Roberts on one hand and Sotomayor and Alito on the other. (My own posts on this theme are here and here.) I had meant to blog more on the theme, but now I don’t have to: Mike’s post captures the point pretty well. I think Mike’s post overdoes it slightly with the comparison of Alito and Sotomayor – neither of them are “rough around the edges” (!), and they have quite different styles — but the comparison is still an interesting one for Court-watchers to ponder.
