3:10 pm
secretrogram and that issue points us to today, with the recent disclosuresbout secret progra where the president has put into effect sueillan methods or who kws what because th're still secret. had two weeks ago, the decision of the supre court not to take up t case brought by t families of 9/11 victims for damages. st horrendous case, perhaps the most, in the history of the world, wh 3,000 people being killed by terrorists. the congress has sd that foreign -- >> senator arlen specter speakingbout recent supreme court ca involving 9/11 milies svivors. we're going to listen to ore, but let's bringin kly o'donnell. you and i both know th a lot is being mde about the tone, how republicans would choose to go after jue otomayor. off top, you've got senator sessions clearly letting the american peopleknow where he stands. >> well, it really was an opportunity for him to plan the flag, if you wil for the consvative per spesspectivepers.
3:11 pm
apart from that, if we put ts in the ctext of political theatre, it had an opening nice quality. everyone was there in their fi finest, looking od many pictures and certainly, many nods to the family of judge sotomayor, especlly her moer. that will not happen when there's a real clasherhaps from time to time or even just a thoughtful exchange of ideas between the senators and the judge who is thenominee. also, justhe notion of the new faces. al fraen who made it very clear t this w thefirst oppounity for him to do a newly minted senatorrtanc as arlen specteras been one the top officials on this committee until he changed parties and lost all that niority. today s day really to give people the opportuni to praise her, toighlig the
3:12 pm
background. in addition to the indisputable qualificatns and great american story she has, but that's going to allow them t ask her mor pointed questions anit gves her a certain sense of comfort that she is among a group of people o arerying to lay out an atmosphere of respt. critical for everyone invoed. the politicsor the is at rights e future for th nominee. >> kelly o'donnell, thank you very much. >> inhe bigger picture today, theone of today's hearing certainly appeared to be cordial, but under the surface, itas easy to sense the ep divisions among party lines nator hatch pointed out views with regard to federal judges.
3:13 pm
watch. >> senator called it quote offensive and cynical end quo to suggest anominee can give her past for abuse he poved it by voting twice to filibuster the nomation and then by voting again her confirmation. toy, we urge to ignore judge sotomayor's speeches all together and foc on herju additional decisions. >> meanwhile, feingoldpointed out -- >> fm a 201 speech takenut of contest haverompted some to charge she's aracist. i lieve at no one who reads the whole speech could come to that colusion. >> former dean of harvard law scol, first of all, welco. did y get a sens today as far as where the battle lines will be tomorrow in terms o
3:14 pm
titutional issues? which particular areas of t law does it look like there will be something to watch tomorrow? >> wre going to see that we're pitting three decades of sonia experience as a lawyer, a prosecutor, a trial judge and circuit judge. her unargule experience on the bench a fighng for victims of crime androsecuting crimes. 're goeng to see that against the replican's constitutional mantras, pperty right race, guns and artion. we'rgoing to hear over and over and over again about tse issues. now the supreme court decides very fewcases iolving those sues. most of what the sreme court decides is what can get into court, wha affects a business climate in america, and we won't
3:15 pm
hear a lot about those cases. 'll hear aot about race, guns, a lot about abortionand operty rights. >> there was a fascinatg moment whejudge sotomayor talked abouthe human coequences of how she decis cases. >> throughout my 17 years on the bench, iave witnessed the human consequences of my decisis. those decisionsave not been made serve the inre of any one litigant, but always to serve the larger interest of impartial justi >> whetheitas because of that part of her opening statement that sator sessions just told the cameras he gives r an aor her opening remarks, but everybody w talking generities. at whatnt moow is there a particular issue where she will get pinned down and has to respond resisly d what wil the issue be?
3:16 pm
>>he big focus tomorrow is going to be race. judge sotomayo sided with th city of new haven saying at you would to have a test for firefighter omotion that didn't screen out the black and latino firefighters. she ruled not on against the white firefighters,but against tw latino irefighters, showing she vos with the law. you'll also see a focus tomorr on certa cases involvi property rights. if you look at therecord, she voted once for the gornment and once for the property wner. there will be a focus on guns and theight to bear arms and you'ee when she ruled in the second circuit on that ca, she ruled the same as a conservative panel in chicagon whethere states should beree to regulate guns and other weapo under the send amendnt. so we'll probay see a cus on issues and her record alys will show moderation and carefu
3:17 pm
adherence to the law and as we fos on her record, wre not going to see any kind bias and yet, the attempt will be to sttch sound bites about things she said inisolated speech. i think we'll see she's a moderate, careful junl follows the w. >> and tomorrow is when these senators, most al mal and all white, walknto a ld mi, depending on how they bring uphe remarks about a wise lata, or hazardou things ey say about men, knowing th is only the third woman who has beenn this potion. >> youe right. we're goingto seehe potential for all kinds of gaffes and missteps tomorrow if people focus on these statements rather an her record. her record doesn't show that she sidewith plntiffs in civil rits cases based on race.
3:18 pm
she rule againstost of the claims of ration discrimination d ruledhe same as other who weppointed by republicans. we'll see a lot of fancy footwork torrow defending -- nominated to court. >> thank you so much for coming in. a reminder, coming up later this hour, we will speak live wit senator chk schumer a that tamron, you kno i think you t your finger on it. the political mind field tomorrow, 's not just for dge somayor. it's also for the senats questioning her. >> it coulbe ver interesting. this time tomorrow, we could be talking about the gaffe made by one of thosesenators. >> fainating. a story deloping now out of washinon. a fema u.s. sailor has be
