Nominee Elena Kagan has been winning praise from senators in both parties but some officials do not think Kagan has enough legal experience.

Representative Pomeroy says any nominee will draw criticism and thinks she is a good choice.

"The nominee has impeccable legal credentials and unless something were to come up, I would expect it to proceed in fairly orderly way, leading to approval."

If Kagan is approvedit will mark the first time the Supreme Court has had three women judges.
