GOP leader not ruling out blocking Sotomayor

GOP leader not ruling out blocking Sotomayor; The Associated Press
The Senate's top Republican says it's "way too early to know" whether his party will try to block a vote on Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation.

Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell says he thinks using Senate rules to try to stop judges is a "bad idea," but that it's still a tool that "may or may not be employed at some point."

Other senior GOP senators have said they don't foresee using the tactics.

Comment: Throwing republicans a dog snap; but really it's just one big party. Hell, I'm willing to bet there was more diversity of opinions in the old Soviet Union than there is in Washington City.
