Kagan the Next Obama-Like Media Darling

Probably. Apparently they all hang out in the same liberal circles.

For Elena Kagan, this much is true: She has friends in journo circles. Seems like everybody has a “Kagan Connection.”

Most assessments of Kagan begin like this:

“I first met Kagan in the mid-’90s when we were both former law clerks for Judge Abner Mikva on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit,” wrote The New Republic’s Jeffrey Rosen.

“Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and I shared a dinner table once,” wrote Washington Post writer Jonathan Capehart.

“I had her for two classes” at Harvard Law School, said CBS’ Jan Crawford Greenberg. “But she was very challenging, while at the same time very engaging and lively.”

And those are just her periphery acquaintances.
