Nelson: I’m Pleased With What I’ve Learned About Sotomayor…So Far | Talking Points Memo

Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) met with Sonia Sotomayor yesterday, and walked away impressed. Just… not impressed enough to fully endorse her nomination. “I was pleased to meet with Judge Sotomayor today and I am impressed with what I have learned so far about her life, career and views,” Nelson said. “We had a very good discussion about the role of the different branches of government, her history on the bench and previous cases, and her judicial philosophy.”
