Tim Jeffries, founder of the consulting firm P7 Enterprises, gave a rather heated testimony about Sotomayor's leniency towards criminals. But that was only part of his beef. He angrily pointed out that very few Senators are actually in the hearing as he discusses the Sotomayor's view of crime.

Just one more indication that probably only about 25% of what goes on in these hearings is actually useful. If the Senators aren't even sticking around, isn't something broken with the hearings process?
