We should all applaud Senator Graham for asking Judge Sotomayor the tough questions during her confirmation hearings. Rather than gloss over the questioning on a nominee who is all but certain to be confirmed, the Senator has done a great job in allowing Americans to gain insight into the predispositions and judicial philosophy of the Judge.
