WebPulse: BP and Supreme Court nominee dominate

The Gulf Coast oil spill continues to dominate the news as Rep. Henry Waxman, D-California, revealed that the oil company privately told the Energy and Commerce subcommittee on oversight that the well failed a key pressure test just hours before it exploded on April 20.

People still want to know more about Solicitor General Elena Kagan, President Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court as she began making rounds to the offices of key senators on the Hill amid criticism from Republicans.

    It seems to me that this administration seek out people with little profile and experience for some of the most important positions. Has this women had judicial experience in the lower courts? What cases has she heard and what was the quality of her decisions? These are questions that she will face and if in fact she is proven to qualify OK, but I would be surprised if the Senate approves based on my limited reading.
