Talking Points Memo notes Senator Arlen Specter voted against Elena Kagan last year, when President Obama nominated her for solicitor general.
In a letter to Kagan, Specter said he was dissatisfied with her answers to the Judiciary Committee, arguing they were too vague. “I believe these answers are inadequate for confirmation purposes,” he wrote.
A nod to TPM for uploading the letter to Scrib.
