Sotomayor Gets A Floor Vote

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-6 in favor of Judge Sotomayor, so now a floor vote of the full Senate will be scheduled.

The federal judiciary is more conservative than it has been since the 1930's but the republicans after having been soundly defeated in two elections still do not get that the people do not want it this way.

The republicans were not happy to have a Justice that is currently a very slight bit more conservative than Justice Souter, who is retiring and whose place she will take.

Digging in when they should be rebuilding the party with people who are in tune with what American wants will cost them even more.
