Sessions: Sotomayor 'a delight'

Sonia Sotomayor was "a delight," Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said today after meeting the SCOTUS nominee.

"I was very impressed with her knowledge, her experience, her energy level," Sessions said as he emerged from the meeting. "It was a delight to talk with her."

Sotomayor has been on the Hill today meeting with key Senators. Sen. Pat Leahy (D-Vt.) told reporters that Sotomayor assured him that she would follow the law as a justice.
