Senate Committee Approves Elena Kagan's Nomination

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-6 on Tuesday to confirm Elena Kagan and move her Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham was the only Republican to vote for her. "I'm going to vote for her because I believe the last election had consequences," Graham said. "This president chose someone who is qualified, who has the experience and knowledge to serve on this court ... and understands the difference between being a liberal judge and a politician." The full Senate will take up her nomination in early August.

You have to admire Lindsey Graham for voting his conscience and bucking his party.  He can expect retaliation of some form, just watch and see.
