President Obama is expected at 10 a.m. today to announce his nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.

Kagan, the former dean of Harvard Law School, has not previously served as a judge.

If selected, Kagan will succeed longtime liberal Justice John Paul Stevens, who is retiring this summer.
