Day 1 of Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee has concluded after a relatively brief session with opening statements by the Senators and Sotomayor. Questioning will begin tomorrow morning when the hearing resumes.
If anyone listened to all the opening statements, I salute you.
UPDATE: The Houston Chronicle has a photo of Sotomayor’s nephews dozing during the hearing. It’s hard enough for adults, it would be torture for kids.
