Why I Love Mother Jones Blogger Kevin Drum

He says Obama will probably nominate Elena Kagan, whose written record is surprisingly thin. And just why will Obama nominate her?

Because Obama seems to have almost a sixth sense for doing things that annoy me just a little bit. On most issues he's roughly in the same ballpark as me, but in the end he always seems to end up just a notch to my right. Not enough to really piss me off, but enough to keep me perpetually just a little disappointed. A Kagan nomination would fit that pattern perfectly. So I'm bracing myself for yet another mild disappointment.
