DAVID BERNSTEIN: Let’s Not Get Too Excited About Kagan. Conservatives and libertarians may get excited, but if the judge-pickers in the Obama White House thought she really had any conservative or libertarian sympathies, they would have picked someone else. So — who are the rubes, this time? I have my suspicions. . . . .

And Bernstein’s Calabresi analogy is good, but in Kagan’s favor, unlike Calabresi she never compared Bush to Mussolini. So she’s got that going for her, anyway.

On the other hand, folks on the left are comparing her to Harriet Miers.
