Does Obama Know that Elena Kagan Is Pro-Israel?

A little embarrassing for The One, wouldn’t you say?

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan said her admiration for a former Israeli chief justice was rooted in her Jewishness and admiration for Israel. …

This actually puts Zionist conservatives in a tough spot. On the one hand, we have a rare defense of Israel from someone in the Obama camp that is genuine, well-informed, and morally sensible. On the other, we have an endorsement of an Israeli jurist whose exegetical views would elevate judges into a position not indistinguishable from the philosopher-kings of Plato’s Republic. Obviously, she should be voted down. But still.
