Just because he introduces you to his colleagues, doesn’t mean he’ll vote for you.
That’s what U.S. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan found out on Thursday about Senator Scott Brown.
Usually there wouldn’t have been great expectations for a Republican senator to vote for a Democratic president’s nominee, but in the case of Brown vs. Kagan the outcome was a question mark.
He did after all introduce her to the Senate Judiciary Committee at her confirmation hearing, given that they’re both from Massachusetts.
But on Thursday, Brown said he would be voting against President Barack Obama’s nominee to the highest U.S. court.
