Lieberman likes Sotomayor

Looks like Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), a leading centrist in the Senate, is on board with Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Here is the statement Lieberman just put out:
"President Obama made an impressive choice by nominating Judge Sotomayor for the position of Associate Justice for the Supreme Court. Judge Sotomayor's career represents the best of the American dream and she possesses distinguished and superior legal credentials. I look forward to the upcoming hearings and I hope that there is a bi-partisan effort to ensure a fair confirmation process."
