Essential Estrogen: Iowa's senators take party line stance in Sotomayor nomination

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Iowa's two U.S. Senators -- Chuck Grassley, a Republican, and Tom
Harkin, a Democrat -- are floating party line stances in their first
two statements regarding Pres. Barack Obama's nomination of Judge
Sonia Sotomayor for the U.S. Supreme Court. "A lifetime appointment
requires a thorough vetting, and I expect Judge Sotomayor to receive
fair and deliberative consideration," Grassley said in a statement
released this morning. "The United States Senate has a responsibility
to carefully review nominees to the Supreme Court. The Judiciary
Committee should take time to ensure that the nominee will be true to
the Constitution and apply the law, not personal politics, feelings or
preferences."
