Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor continued this morning to explain, downplay and apologize for her controversial past statements, as her confirmation hearing went into its third day. But Republican senators are clearly not happy with what she is saying.
During a break in the hearing, Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) complained that she has shed no more light today than yesterday. "It's very confusing," said Cornyn. Her judicial record is "fairly traditional," Cornyn said, but if she becomes a justice who is more like her speeches than her rulings, "It's a problem."
Sotomayor's calm tone and manner has continued, and she seems unperturbed by the senators' displeasure.
