(CNN) - Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, said Tuesday he will support Solicitor General Elena Kagan's Supreme Court nomination. Graham is the only GOP member of the Senate Judiciary Committee so far to indicate he will vote for Kagan.
Graham was the only Judiciary Committee Republican to vote for Justice Sonia Sotomayor last year.
The Judiciary Committee is set to vote on Kagan's nomination Tuesday.
When Lindsey Graham is the voice of reason.... what is this country coming to?
What a courageous thing to do. How statesmanlike! I applaud Sen. Graham for his vote. And while I agree with virtually none of his politics, I do respect him.
It cracks me up how the word "progressive" is considered threatening by the far right neocons. Progress is generally thought of as positive; at least where I work. The opposite, "regress," is to go backwards. Oh, now I get it!
The right wingnuts (like Stalin and Hitler) do not tolerate independent thought or action.
Refreshing approach; he actually thought about it before making a blanket emotional decision.
Thank you Senator Graham.
Refreshing. We need more politicians on both sides of the aisle that vote for America over their party. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with his decision, his integrity deserves respect. From a lib in Washington State.
graham is a liberal in his heart and needs to be thrown out not voted out by thrown out.
GG, you just said it absolute right as any crazy right-wing nutcase sees it.
First the party. Second the country.
First the country and its people, second the party would be correct.
Graham is a RINO
Man, the Rabid Righties are foaming at the mouth today aren't they? He-he-he . . . . thanks Sen. Graham :-)
What little respect I had left for Lindsey Graham just got flushed.
Reading some of these comments from so-called Republicans or Conservatives, They remind me very much about the party and its early members in Germany 1933. The Adolfs are back. Unwanted but back. Find a cave and stay in there.
Graham is the most inarticlutate man. He needs to be "refuteated," but at least he has enough common sense to vote for Kegan!
Let me guess he's gonna be the only Republican to say yes.What a bunch of good for nothing obstructionist
By far, he has shown, what the real Reaganism is all about. I hope he had the chance to rrun for president. A real warrior of the senate, in all senses, a qualm will devotion. Just like Reagan, straight shooter with no hesitation. A real Oak, I do praise you MR GRAHAM, you are the real Reagan itself. That's what we need in this country. Down to business, no cheap retorics. You are a real PRESIDENT!!! Please run for the GOP, you have being lining up things on your way, YOU HAVE THE LATINO VOTE, AND YOU KNOW THAT!! SOTOMAYOR = LATINO VOTE KAGAN = WHITE VOTE. Please, shown the rest of the GOP's how it gets done.
Is anyone really surprised by this? Graham reports to jew Lieberman and his other kike masters at the end of the day...an epitome of the Shabbos Goy. And what's better for the "Chosen People" than another one of their very own parasites on the high court? With jews, YOU LOSE.
Graham is a tool. Needs to be voted out.
So now the liberals care for Lindsey Graham all of a sudden? Laughable! As soon as he votes against the liberals again, the hate wil flow like lava!
One truthful member of the GOP (at least on this subject) stood up and in essence said stop playing politics and lets govern the country instead of sitting on the sidelines whining like a bunch of kids who didn't get picked to play.
Vote NO in NOvember to the party of NO.
Alvin Greene could defeat graham.
Thank you for doing what you were voted in to do. The republican party is just silly, hateful, and outright nasty.
thanks senator graham for having common sense and voting your convictions,I'm glad that you are your own man and not a puppet like the rest of your party,who does what they are told.
All you morons hoping that Graham gets voted out of office? You might want to take note of the fact that the next time he comes up for re-election is 2014. Do you honestly think anyone in South Carolina is going to remember or care that he voted yes for Kagan to go before the Senate for the nomination vote?
I rarely agree with Senator Graham on the issues, but I have great respect for his refusal to march in lock-step with the Party of No. The GOP needs more independent thinkers like Lindsey Graham.
Well done, Senator!
