argument as solicitor general. my heart was beating really hard, literally, the only time in my life when i have known what that expression means. i practically could not hear anything because of the pounding of happening inside my own body. i thought, how my going to do this? i got up to the podium, and i had memorized as people do, three or four or five sentences to start with. at the end of the first sentence, which frankly, i had a goodlly thought was sense, it seemed to me like a fairly undisputed anodyne kind of sentence. at the end of the first sentence, justice scalia leaned over the bench in his way that i grew to know that he has, leaned over and said -- i made a short declarative sentence, and he wait asit, wait, wait,
!" issio wait it was absolute best thing that anyone could have done. it forced me to be in the game right away, and my own view is that he knew that. that he knew, from the sound of my voice, saying that single sentence, that i was a little bit shaky. and he was just going to put me into the game right away, and if some many challenges you, you have to stand right back. that is what happened and it turned out fine. announcer: supreme court justice elena kagan talks about her life on the court on saturday at 8 p.m. eastern on c-span. senator kamala harris
