In an interview with Crain's this morning, respected former congressman
and judge Abner Mikva strongly endorsed U.S. Solicitor General Elena
Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court. "She's going to be a good one," Mikva told Greg Hinz. "She has the intellect, she has the enthusiasm."
Mikva also emphasized Kagan's "conservative views," including her
support for "family values" and "immigrant traditions." Kagan
previously clerked under Mikva and served as his deputy during his
tenure in the Clinton Administration.
