    about Miss Kagan. Some great balanced informative information can be found here. I, too, was concerned at first when I heard about this memo, so I did more digging. She wrote this memo in her capacity as one of President Clinton's assistant (or associate?) White House counsels as a compromise with HCR or abortion policy that was currently going on in Congress supported by then - Senator Tom Daschle & counter to a much more oppressive GOP alternative. President Clinton rejected both, and the GOP alternative never became an option. Just because Miss Kagan was doing her job at the time doesn't mean she PERSONALLY supported the policy. I am not overly - enthusiastic about her nomination, but this memo is not a big source of concern for me.

    Thanks for all you do!
