On the Campaign Trail with Ed Tibbetts: Grassley draws notice (but it's not what you think)
Excerpted from this post at BLOGNAME
U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley's been in the news a lot lately because of
his role in the health care talks. But he's also drawing some
attention for his vote against the nomination of Appeals Court Judge
Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. It was Grassley's first
vote against a Supreme Court nominee in his 29 years in the Senate.
He's said that he wasn't convinced Sotomayor wouldn't let her personal
beliefs affect the outcome of cases. The Wall Street Journal's
coverage this week quoted him extensively. And here's a piece from CBS
News legal analyst Andrew Cohen expressing shock at Grassley's vote.
