The Ruth Institute Podcast

May 14, 2010

(May 11, 2010) President Obama's pick for the Supreme Court, Solicitor-General Elena Kagan, is proving to be a bit of a mystery--she's never sat on the judicial bench and has a limited paper trail on the controversial issues on which she'll be expected to rule.  And in a bit of local excitement, the Ruth Institute has attracted the tolerant and reasonable attention of the Daily Kos.  Dr J and Todd Wilken discuss these developments in a segment of Issues, Etc.
