The US Supreme Court and Partisan Politics

Hosted by

Judge Sonia Sotomayor is likely to be the next member of the US Supreme Court.  But Senators of both parties are using her confirmation hearings as a political platform. We hear about the first day of what could be a week of setting agendas. Also, Goldman Sachs' big profits, and more controversy about the CIA, the Bush Administration and Democrats in the Congress.
