    (CNSNews.com) -- Justice Elena Kagan said she was “not sure” if President Barack Obama would have nominated her to the Supreme Court if she had not been a woman.

    During a talk before law students on Friday at the University of Tennessee Law School, Kagan said, “And to tell you the truth, there were also things that I got because I was a woman. I mean I'm not sure I'd be sitting here.”

    “I'm not sure that I would've been President Obama's nominee if I weren't a woman,” she said. “And if he wasn't as committed as he was to ensuring that there was diversity on the Supreme Court.”

    “So, mostly what I think when I think about this question is how far we've come and how much I owe -- and all the women who have come after me owe-- to people like Justice Ginsburg and Justice O'Connor,” she said.

    Kagan was initially asked by Dean of Tennessee Law School Doug Blaze, “It’s been a remarkable career, and you’ve been quite a pioneer along the way. [The] first woman to be Dean of the Harvard Law School, first woman solicitor general of the United States. You’re now the fourth woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court and one of three presently serving.”

    “Along the way, what challenges have you faced as a woman and what changes have you seen in the legal profession, if any, over that period of time?" he said.

    Kagan replied that most of the challenges of being a woman in the legal profession were already overcome by the women who preceded her.

    “Well, I feel pretty lucky that I haven’t had to surmount all that many barriers or leap over all that many hurdles that were there because I was a woman,” said Kagan. “And I think that that’s because of the time I came along where a lot of the women who preceded me had done a lot of the hard work to make sure that women and men were evaluated equally and had the same opportunities as each other.”

    He may not have known she was a woman, her picture does little to give it away.





    Are these all the same person?

    'Justice Kagan'.

    What an insult to have those 2 words in the same sentence.

    That face is the most effective contraceptive I have ever seen.

    Who Does SCOTUS Nominee Elena Kagan Look Like?
    By Kashmir Hill

    Will confirmation hearings remind Kagan of the Pit of Despair?

    UPDATE: Vote in our Elena Kagan Look-A-Like Contest here.

    Every time we write about Solicitor General Elena Kagan (and we’re writing about her quite frequently since Obama tapped her for the Supreme Court), our readers immediately begin commenting on her looks.

    That is not unusual in these parts. Men and women are often superficial. Rather than analyzing her law review articles or performance before the High Court in Citizens United v. FEC, people focus on her face. More specifically, the resemblance her face bears to other faces: Kevin James, a character from the Princess Bride, and Carrie Fisher, among others.

    You people are shallow, sad creatures…

    But we are too. We’ve written before about how attractive lawyers do better financially than their looks-challenged counterparts in the private sector, and unattractive people’s tendency to migrate out of law firms and into government and public sector jobs.

    We’ve also commented specifically on Kagan’s looks. Lat is a devoted fan:

    Solicitor General Kagan, you’re quite pretty. There’s a reason you made our list of law school dean hotties, back when you were dean at Harvard Law School. You have great skin, a dazzling smile, and a girlish glow. You definitely possess assets that merit accentuation.

    A few years back, Kagan was nominated for our Law School Dean Hotties contest. Now we’re devoting an entire contest to her: the Elena Kagan look-a-like contest.

    We’re accepting submissions in the comments, and choosing finalists based on those with the most “likes.” A photo essay on suggestions so far, after the jump….

    Here are candidates mentioned thus far. Click on each thumbnail for the name of the supposed doppelgänger.

    Why do we need "diversity" among a group of people whose mandate is to interpret the law impartially? And since all justices are graduates from either Harvard or Yale, shouldn't we have one from Ole Miss?

    I'm pretty sure that Clarence Thomas wouldn't be on the court if he was white. Bush I picked him to replace Thurgood Marshall.
