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.
