Kagan Set to be Nominated

As can be seen in all the news reports this morning, President Obama is set to nominate Solicitor General Elena Kagan as the 112th Supreme Court Justice, to succeed Justice John Paul Stevens. The announcement is set to take place at 10 a.m.

This announcement brings with it all sorts of potential historical implications. It could be the first time that three women will serve at the same time. Ms. Kagan could be the youngest person ever nominated to the court, at 50 years old. There is also a lot of talk about her prior judicial experience....

Any thoughts on how different this confirmation process could be from Justice Sotomayor's confirmation? I'm betting quite a bit different.
