Potential Harvard Prez. Profiled

The Princeton Alumni Weekly profiled Elena Kagan, who online betting sites give 3 to 1 odds will become the next president of Harvard University. The profile, by Kathryn Beaumont, talks about Kagan’s career as dean of Harvard Law School. The piece is soft focus, as Kagan is a Princeton graduate, with less than a full sentence about her treatment of two high-level plagiarism cases involving Harvard Law School professors (see more at The Harvard Crimson here and here). The takeaway: “Elena has an extraordinary talent for not making enemies,” as one source told PAW. Sounds like she would be a change from Larry Summers.
