“[Elena] Kagan’s confirmation would give the Ivy League law schools complete hegemony over the Supreme Court. The new lineup of justices would be non-WASP, but they—like President Obama—all would have been trained in the very New England institutions that were established to spread Yankee learning. Students don’t just strive to attend Harvard and Yale for their educational excellence. There is also the matter of absorbing those universities’ sense of authority, legitimacy, and historical legacy. If Kagan is confirmed, don’t cry for the WASPs. The only thing that has changed is that today’s WASP elites are just as likely to be Jews and Catholics as they are to be Yankees.”
