Elena Kagan has been confirmed by the United States Senate to serve on the Supreme Court.

The vote was 63-37 in favor. Republican Sens. Coburn, Collins, Gregg, Hatch, Kyl, Lugar and Snowe all joined most of the Democrats in confirming the Obama nominee.

Kagan played her cards right throughout the process, refusing to take controversial positions, deftly dodging points of controversy, and generally shielding what her jurisprudential philosophy is. She's done much the same throughout her whole career.

Now we'll get to see what kind of a jurist Kagan will make.
