Kagan seems to be cruising toward easy confirmation

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan on Wednesday appeared to be cruising toward relatively easy confirmation, as she spent a third day assuring Senate Judiciary Committee members that she has no preset ideological agenda. Her hearing so far has followed what's become a standard judicial confirmation script, as sympathetic Democrats build her up and skeptical Republicans try to knock her down a notch or two.

  • More NFL players sit, take a knee following Trump criticism

    During President Donald Trump's speech at a rally in Huntsville, Ala. on Sept. 22, 2017, he said any player that sits during the national anthem is a "son of a bitch." The president also rescinded NBA champ Stephen Curry's invitation to the White House. Trump's comments ultimately led to more protests by NFL players, coaches and owners during the national anthem on Sept. 24, 2017.
