Bleeding Heartland: Grassley will vote no on Sotomayor

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Senator Chuck Grassley's office announced today that he will vote
against confirming Judge Sonia Sotomayor as an associate justice of
the U.S. Supreme Court. ... The gist is, he acknowledges Sotomayor's
"credentials on paper" but has unanswered questions about her judicial
philosophy. He doesn't trust her to apply the law without regard for
her "personal biases and prejudices." He also disliked "her lack of
clear and direct answers to simple questions regarding the
Constitution" during her confirmation hearings. For the last 20 years,
Supreme Court nominees have tried to avoid answering specific
questions about issues that are likely to come before the court.
