Obama hasn’t asked Sotomayor about her views on a single specific legal issue. Why?
Confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor began yesterday with a sense of predictability and inevitability within the Senate chambers.

There’s a lively debate in the pro-choice community over whether or not the Supreme Court is ready to overturn Roe.
