Lunchtime (not) at Kagan hearing

Democratic Senator Charles Schumer of New York may be hungry. The hearing began during the lunch hour and he describes the confirmation process as akin to eating spaghetti: it's a lot of work and in the end, you're just not satisfied.

He continued the Democratic litany of praise for Elena Kagan. And then he accused the current court of bowing to special interests and bending the law to a conservative ideology.

He described Kagan as a moderate with the ability to build a bridge between the ideologically divided camps at Harvard Law School.
