Sotomayor Confirmed

06 Aug

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was easily confirmed in a 68-31 vote. Nine Republicans joined a unanimous Democratic caucus in supporting her nomination.

She will be sworn in at the Supreme Court by Chief Justice John Roberts on Saturday. Sotomayor was confirmed after senators spent a final day of debate rehashing the main arguments for and against her.

President Obama, who selected Sotomayor on May 26, said he was “deeply gratified” by the Senate vote.

    I’m very much sick of politics since last November, but this is one more sign of great progress.

    Hell, Bill Clinton ain’t even mad at Obama anymore. It shows the kind of man Obama is: considerate, judicious, with the ability to let others shine.
