Barack Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court Elena Kagan seems to be unpopular with some on the right and on the left. But is her secret that she’s really a centrist — and a triangulator to boot? Ed Morrissey makes the case.
FOOTNOTE: Of course the word “triangulation” is a dirtied word than “compromise” to some on the right and left. But to some in the center, triangulation is not always a bad thing if it results in some kind of consensus buttressed by the middle. But, then, to some the phrase “the middle” is a filthier than the words “comprise” or “triangulate.” (Excuse your own bias in District TMV..)
