The folks at Sunlight Foundation have come up with an innovative tool that lets users search through Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's e-mails from her tenure as White House associate counsel under President Bill Clinton as if it were their own inbox.
Elena's Inbox was created from more than 80,000 e-mails recently released by the Clinton Presidential Library from Kagan's tenure as a White House aide between 1995 and 1999. The threaded format looks similar to Google's Gmail conversations and should allow users to more easily track conversations between Kagan and her White House colleagues.
Tom Lee of Sunlight Labs created the tool after gaining inspiration from this tweet.
