Three videos to watch from today’s hearing and a bonus (action) video from our friends at Presente.org.
First, a clip of Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI), who speaks during the
opening day of Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearing. Before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he challenges the popular Republican theme that a 2001 speech that Sotomayor gave on handling issues of race and gender make her a ‘reverse racist’– Watch it:
Feingold said Monday that opponents who have seized upon that
line are taking her comments out of context. He says the hundreds
of opinions she has written suggest she takes a “cautious and
careful approach” to the law.
