MEANWHILE IN REASONABLE ANTI-KAGAN POINTS: One factor that cemented my Wood love (heh) was that she's--gasp!--a state school product. And it would be nice to get us out of the Harvard-Yale death spiral we're in. The Dem talking points for Kagan involve mentioning "she's outside the judicial monastery!" but being outside the Ivy clique seems much more salient, and novel. Plus Stevens, I believe, is the lone non-Ivy grad left. When Ginsburg goes there'll be nobody left without a Harvard or Yale diploma.
