    What is the porpose of all these pre-confirmation meetings? The senators on the judiciary committee should just do their homework (or have some of their "staff" that we pay for do it for them) in order to best formulate questions for the hearings.

    What on earth does Anita Hill's opinion have to do with Sotomayor's nomination? So what? If it were not for the Clarence Thomas hearings almost 20 years ago, almost nobody would have any idea who she was. She's a lawyer who to my knowledge has never argued a case, instead spending all but 6 months of her whole 28 year career serving in government administration and then teaching. It's not like she is a judicial powerhouse here.

    BTW...my cousin Vinny DOESN'T support her nomination. That should have the same level of importance as this drivel...none.
