Greg Hinz talks with Elena Kagan's old boss, gets some choice pwnage (emphasis mine):

"In the terms you (media) guys use, she often ended up on the liberal side," he continued. "But she had a lot of conservative views. She was very big on family values . . . (and) very sensitive to her immigrant traditions."

Also, shorter Mark Kirk: It's hard to use the old "judicial activist" line against someone who isn't a judge and who hasn't really written much.
