Carl Levin, D-MI
"Mr. President, earlier this week I spoke on the Senate floor, calling for the confirmation of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. I added my voice to a chorus of bipartisan praise for her qualifications and abilities to be a Supreme Court Justice, joining supporters such as Miguel Estrada, Assistant Solicitor General in the George H.W. Bush administration; former Solicitors General Kenneth Starr and Drew S. Days and a number of my Republican colleagues, including Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator Judd Gregg. These voices across the political spectrum recognize Elena Kagan’s years of practical, pragmatic experience, and value, in the words of Professor Michael McConnell, director of the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School, her “fidelity to legal principle even when it means crossing her political and ideological allies.”"

This is because Solicitor General Elena Kagan brings both moderation and practical experience to a Court sorely in need of both."

Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Tomorrow, the majority leader would like to reach agreements to consider the child nutrition bill and to vote on confirmation of the nomination of Elena Kagan to be Associate Justice of the Supreme Court."
