Congress on Sotomayor: A Very Brief History
Mitch McConnell: “I opposed her nomination yeas ago…I’m taking a fresh look.”
Diane Feinstein: She has respect for abortion precedent.
Harry Reid: She has “an underdog appeal.”
Jeff Sessions: Looking to push the confirmation hearings back to September.
While Sotomayor’s meetings with lawmakers are, in part, a formality their importance cannot be discounted – many Republicans and Democrats cite Harriet Miers’ collapse to poor performance in her meetings with Senators. Reportedly, John Roberts was a real hit.
