Breaking News: Childfree Woman to be Next SCOTUS Nominee


Despite the brief hullabaloo (see below) over some pundits demanding a mommy on the bench, it looks like Elena Kagan is Obama's pick for the next Supreme Court nominee. She joins another childfree woman, Soutamayor.

This comes as no surprise, considering the kind of dedication to one's career that one needs to make in order to succeed as these women have. Being childfree or having a spouse take care of the bulk of childrearing (as many male Justices have) gives one a big leg up in this endeavor.

You'll forgive my editorializing here. As a former student of Kagan's I'm a huge fan.
