Charles Fried, Elena Kagan, Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day: Lady Kaga Drops Her Poker Face

She came steaming into my office and said, ‘Why have you done that? It’s a confusing situation and you’ve made it worse.’ She screamed and shouted at me and slammed the door and stormed out.

Two minutes later, she came back and said, ‘I’m sorry I shouted.’ I said, ‘Elena, don’t apologize, you were right.’

Charles Fried, the Harvard Law School professor and former Solicitor General, describing an interaction he had with then-Dean Elena Kagan.
