Views on Maloney, incorporation and Judge Sotomayor's character. Brian Darling, director of Senate Relations at the Heritage Foundation, joins Cam Edwards in studio to discuss Supreme Court Nominee Sotomayor's performance both in the courtroom and at her confirmation hearings. "This nominee is not being fully honest at these hearings," says Darling, pointing out that someone so "well versed" in constitutional law should have been able to cite a Supreme Court case about self-defense-a task she claimed she was unable to do when questioned by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK). Moreover, Darling and Edwards examine Maloney v. Cuomo and the irresponsible citation of precedent in her decision on that case.
