Kagan Nomination Before Committee
By Associated Press
Tulsa, OK – WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is among those on the Judiciary Committee who will be asking questions as confirmation hearings start today for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. The 62-year-old Republican says he is concerned with Kagan's focus on international law during her career, from Harvard to the solicitor general's office, and whether she plans to use foreign law if she is confirmed.
