Twenty-nine former Supreme Court clerks who served with nominee Elena Kagan during the 1987-88 Supreme Court term added their voices Wednesday to the White House’s roll-out of support for Kagan’s confirmation.

“As a group we had — and continue to have — different views from each other on a number of issues,” they wrote in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. “Regardless of whether any given one of us agreed or disagreed with Elena on a particular issue, however, we came to appreciate her approach in those situations. She always has had a wonderful temperament, and is an extraordinary listener who is genuinely interested in what other people think. Elena is able to advance, and at times adjust, her positions while maintaining respect for and openness to other views.”
