Who on earth could vote against Kagan? Ask Obama

As Elena Kagan is confirmed as the fourth woman to serve on the court (the greatest President, a Republican, nominated the first), Obama has been fond of condemning Republicans -- and even Democrats - who are posed to vote against her, expressing bewilderment and outrage. Yet Obama, in one of the few controversial votes he took during his brief turn in the Senate, managed to vote against both John Roberts and Samuel Alito. But the press likes to give him a pass on all that.

So the next time Obama expresses surprise or indignation over how anyone could vote against a Supreme Court nominee, maybe someone should ask him to shed light on it, as he was in the minority that did exactly that.
