Elena Kegan confirmed as next Supreme Courty Justice

On a 63 to 37 vote, former United States Solicitor General and Supreme Court Nominee, Elena Kagan, will be the newest member of the United States Supreme Court.  While the ideological make-up will be relatively the same, this will mark the first time in the history of the United States no members of the High Court will have a Protestant faith affiliation. 

The only Democrat voting against her was Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska.  Republicans voting for her confirmation were both Senators from Maine, Olympia Snow and Susan Collins, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg, and Indiana Senator Richard "Dick" Lugar.
