Hats Off To The Nine Republicans Who Voted For Sonia Sotomayor

August 6, 2009


The Senate vote for confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor (68-31) was an embarrassment for the Republicans Party.  A truly partisan divide took place today for the vote to place Sonia Sotomayor on the bench.  A jurist it should be noted again that has all the credentials to make a fine addition to the Supreme Court.  As such I think it important to give a tip of the hat to salute the members of the GOP that were able to understand that elections have consequence, and that a nominee unless found not capable of holding the office for which they were nominated, should be seated.  It should be noted that both Maine Senators saw the light.

The Republicans who voted for confirmation are Lamar Alexander (TN), Kit Bond (MO), Susan Collins (ME), Lindsey Graham (SC), Judd Gregg (NH), Richard Lugar (IN), Mel Martinez (FL), Olympia Snowe (ME) and George Voinovich (OH).

    I am surprised all democrats voted to confirm. The the republicans’ vote shows a toleration for disagreement. What is wrong with this picture? It looks fishy.
