Kagan Keeps Up Heavy Schedule of Hill Visits

WASHINGTON (AP) - She may never have been a judge or worked on many cases, but Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is assuring senators that she's up to the job of being a justice.

Her lack of courtroom experience is just one line of criticism Republicans are lobbing against Kagan, the 50-year-old solicitor general President Barack Obama tapped to succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.

Kagan has gotten off to a fast start meeting with senators whose votes she'll need for confirmation. She is shuttling from Capitol Hill office to office for a delicate but crucial series of "courtesy calls."

Republicans are also questioning whether Kagan can be impartial in light of her political views and current position on Obama's team.
