Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan ended her Senate testimony Wednesday and all signs point that she will become the high court’s fourth female justice.

Politicians on both sides of the aisle appear to have resigned themselves to the fact after three days and 15 hours of questioning Kagan, the Associated Press reports. The Solicitor General could be confirmed to the Supreme Court in the first half of July.

Kagan again refused to offer much insight into her personal views, and sidestepped such issues as abortion, gun rights and gays in the military. Kagan said that’s because she would be able to separate her personal and political views from her job as a justice.


“As a judge, you are on nobody’s team. As a judge, you are an independent actor,” Kagan said.

The AP described Kagan as being “unscathed” by the three days of Senate Judiciary Committee vetting.

Kagan herself sounded triumphant, telling the AP, “I found it somewhat wearying but actually a great moment in my life.”
