Elena Kagan confirmed to the Supreme Court

Elena Kagan has just been confirmed to the SCOTUS. This is the first time in history three women will serve on the Supreme Court at the same time. Sen. Chuck Schumer said “average Americans will be a step closer to once again having their voices heard in the highest court in the land.”

Let’s hope this is one of the most positive long-term effects of the Obama presidency.
