LGBT groupsmixed on SupremeCourt nominee
By CHRIS JOHNSONcjohnson@washblade.com
President Obama’s nomina-tion of Solicitor General ElenaKagan to the Supreme Court isinspiring varied reactions, rang-ing from excitement to caution,as questions linger about herrecord on LGBT issues.Many LGBT advocacy groupsare pleased that Kaganopposed military recruitment onHarvard’s campus because“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” violatesuniversity non-discriminationpolicies, but others are waitingfor her to clarify her positions onLGBT issues in congressionaltestimony before the Senate.Meanwhile, questions aboutKagan’s sexual orientation dis-tracted attention from her recordthis week, as some anti-gay con-servatives — along with morethan a few LGBT bloggers —speculated that she is a lesbian.Obama nominated Kagan to fillthe seat that will be vacated at theend of the term by retiringAssociate Justice John PaulStevens. If the Senate confirmsher to the position, there would bethree women sitting on theSupreme Court, the most womenthe bench has seen in its history.Prior to her tenure as solicitor gen-eral, in which she defended federallaw before the Supreme Court,Kagan was a clerk for formerAssociate Justice Thurgood Marshall,an associate White House counselfor former President Bill Clinton anddean of Harvard law school.
