This is an easy one. Elena Kagan, up or down? President Obama's pick for the Supreme Court has mounted the stage of “American Idol: Political Edition.” Over the next months, she’ll be scrutinized, questioned, and debated. Her high school yearbook pictures are already public, along with college essays—indignities that really should not land on anyone. She is also now the centerpiece of a periodic national parlor game in which esteemed ladies and gentlemen of great education and accomplishment become the personification of many of our favorite issues. Guns, gays, abortion, torture, Miranda, and more will be back in the chat mill. Where do you stand on Kagan? Share your thoughts at editor@usnews.com and we’ll see if we can add some light to the heat.
