U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin Confident Sonia Sotomayor Will Glide to Supreme Court Confirmation

The Senate confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor enter day three today. Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions is still skeptical because of Sotomayor's wise Latina woman quote. In questioning yesterday, Sotomayor expressed regret for words that fueled her critics' complaints that she is biased. Senate majority whip Dick Durbin shares his thoughts on the confirmation process.
