Some liberal and conservative former solicitors general are endorsing Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court.

In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, 10 lawyers named by Republican and Democratic presidents to represent the government before the Supreme Court say Kagan will serve with distinction.

The group includes noted conservatives Ted Olson and Ken Starr, the prosecutor who investigated former President Bill Clinton while Kagan served in his White House.

They say Kagan will bring broad experience and a history of great accomplishment to the court.

The White House arranged a conference call Tuesday with Seth P. Waxman, a Clinton administration solicitor general, and Paul Clement, who served under President George W. Bush, to discuss their support.
