Good for Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., for approving Elena Kagan’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Graham was the only Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote to send the nomination to the full Senate. As Graham has noted, elections matter, and presidents should have considerable prerogative in picking justices. And as long as a nominee is well-qualified and of good character, the Senate should approve the nomination. That’s why The Eagle editorial board has supported the nominees, liberal and conservative, of past Republican and Democratic presidents.
