While following the Sotomayor hearings today, keep this article in mind. Ronald Reagan nominated Sessions to the Federal bench in 1986 and the nomination was killed in committee because Sessions was not qualified. How ironic that he is now the ranking member on the Judiciary Committee. I wonder why that experience with the committee is not included in his biography on the committee's Web site?
