Chat about the Supreme Court
Washington bureau reporters David Savage and James Oliphant will be covering the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, which begin Monday. Savage has covered the confirmation of every Supreme Court justice since Antonin Scalia's in 1986 -- which means that with the retirement of Justice John Paul Stevens, he will have covered the confirmations of all current justices.
Savage and Oliphant will be chatting with readers at 1 p.m. Friday. Ask them your questions about the confirmation process, the hurdles Kagan may face, and how the politics of an election year may affect the process.
