Breaking: Elena Kagan Confirmed By The Senate

Via Politico:
BREAKING NEWS – The Senate has confirmed Elena Kagan, President Barack Obama’s solicitor general, as the newest Supreme Court justice. Kagan, the former dean of Harvard Law School, replaces retiring Justice John Paul Stevens and becomes the fourth woman to serve on the court in its 121-year history. The vote confirming Kagan, who also served in the Clinton administration, was largely along party lines, with just a handful of Republicans voting with Democrats to confirm her – and one Democrat, Senator Ben Nelson (D-Neb.), voting no. She is expected to join the court when it reconvenes after its summer recess.
