Graham: I have been 'generally pleased' with Kagan's work as SG

Washington (CNN) - Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, issued the following statement:

"Solicitor General Kagan has a strong academic background in the law. I have been generally pleased with her job performance as Solicitor General, particularly regarding legal issues related to the War on Terror. I look forward to meeting her again, this time to discuss her qualifications to sit on the highest court in the land.

"As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I intend to be fair and firm in my questioning of the nominee. The hearings can be a valuable public service as they give us a window into the nominee’s judicial philosophy and disposition. I hope we will have a meaningful opportunity to explore the qualifications, judicial temperament, and judicial philosophy of Ms. Kagan."

    A rare commodity among Repubs.–A Voice of Reason; not infallible, but still, a wisp of fresh air.

    Boy, Republicans sure can talk about the educational requirements they look at but they sure had no requirements for Palin. Interesting.
