So Will She Change Her Mind Now That She Has Been Nominated????

Now that Barack Obama nominated his Solicitor General, Elena Kagan, to replace outgoing Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens it will be interesting to see if she feels the same way now as she did when she authored a paper in 1995 about the Bork nomination hearing:
"The Bork hearings presented to the public a serious discussion of the meaning of the Constitution, the role of the Court, and the views of the nominee; that discussion at once educated the public and allowed it to determine whether the nominee would move the Court in the proper direction. Subsequent hearings have presented to the public a vapid and hollow charade, in which repetition of platitudes has replaced discussion of viewpoints and personal anecdotes have supplanted legal analysis. Such hearings serve little educative function, except perhaps to reinforce lessons of cynicism that citizens often glean from government. … [T]he fundamental lesson of the Bork hearings [is] the essential rightness—the legitimacy and the desirability—of exploring a Supreme Court nominee’s set of constitutional views and commitments." (emphasis mine)
