Would Elena Kagan support putting cameras in the Supreme Court? Looks like it. C-SPAN footage posted on Mediaite shows the nominee discussing the issue in July 2009. Having cameras in court would allow the public to see "an amazing and extraordinary event," she says. People would see "an institution of their government I think working at a really high level," she adds. "That’s one plus factor for doing it.” Get ready for your close up, Justice Scalia.
