Obama names Elena Kagan as Supreme Court nominee

President Barack Obama on Monday nominated Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court to replace John Paul Stevens, who's retiring. Kagan, 50, would be the youngest justice on the nine-member court, her age likely a key factor because it could mean a long tenure and a long-lasting imprint on the court for Obama.
