Elena Kagan, Anti-Military Solicitor General?

Obama wants to appoint Elena Kagan of Harvard Law School as his Solicitor General. Keep in mind that Kagan wanted to overturn the Solomon Amendment which limits funding to schools that ban the military from recruiting on campus. And even Justice Scalia and Stevens agreed on that one.

Kagan has also never argued before the Supreme Court (or even an apellate court) in her life. Maybe we should want her as Solicitor General since she'd probably lose a lot...
