Opposing speeches from the Sotomayor hearings on Capitol Hill. As the full senate continues to debate the confirmation of Supreme Court Nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor, Ginny Simone reports that some Republican senators have clearly opposed her appointment to the high court, citing fear that she would "legislate from the bench" and disregard the Second Amendment as a fundamental right. Simone shows coverage of these senators' speeches from the floor.
