Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream: Kagan Will Garner Bipartisan Support in the Senate “Because She’s Had a Very Distinguished Career. No One Would Argue Anything But That She is a Brilliant Individual – She’s Got a Fantastic Resume. And She Is Known as Being a Consensus-Builder.” Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream: “So I would think that this is the kind of nominee that will have [Sen. Reid’s] full backing, his full support, and that of many, many other top Democrats and even some Republicans in the Senate, because she’s had a very distinguished career. No one would argue anything but that she is a brilliant individual – she’s got a fantastic resume. And she is known as being a consensus-builder, I mean, something that’s been discussed with her before. When she was a dean at Harvard she brought together a lot of people, students and faculty, and was really seen as somebody who was a bridge builder.” [Fox News Channel
