Cornyn hints he's unlikely to back Kagan's nomination

Texas Sen. John Cornyn sharply criticized Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan on Monday, hinting strongly that her lack of judicial experience, privileged background and role in Harvard University's efforts to bar military recruiters make it unlikely he will support her confirmation.

"The president says he wants to appoint somebody who will understand how the court's decisions will impact regular people," said Cornyn, a Republican who sits on the Judiciary Committee, which will first consider Kagan's nomination. "I don't see how Ms. Kagan meets the president's own standard."
