  •  Kyl pushed back on that notion today (0+ / 0-)

    TPM has a quote from his time on Fux "news" today where he basically said that just because he voted for her once, doesn't mean he'll do it again.

    On Fox News today, Kyl said that when he voted for Kagan last time, "I made it clear that for the temporary position of Solicitor General, a position she might hold for a matter of maybe four years at most, that I could overlook her relative lack of experience, and lack of knowledge about her background."

    However, he said, the Supreme Court "is a lifetime appointment," and "so it's important for us to have a good understanding of her background that we really didn't delve into so much" during the last confirmation process.
