In a line of questioning designed to ascertain her position on the nature of a fundamental right, Sen. Coburn gets Sotomayor to at least vary her speech — which is way more exciting than the tone of any of her other responses thus far. Sotomayor responded forcefully to Coburn with a question back at him, saying "Would you want a judge or a nominee, who came in here" and formed a decision on a case before she had spend time reviewing cases? Coburn didn't really back down, but did concede the point.
