Are we surprised at this?
After all the racist talk from the Republicans or the D.C. Republicans "spokesmen"?
Grassley and Sessions worried about her personal biases? Please. Did they ever put their own "biases" in check when it came to former George W. Bush and how he practically destroyed this country?

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor appears headed to quick confirmation as the first Hispanic justice despite opposition from a growing chorus of conservative Republican senators who say she would bring liberal bias to the high court.
A Senate Judiciary Committee vote Tuesday was expected to advance Sotomayor, President Barack Obama's first Supreme Court nominee, to the full Senate, where she's all but guaranteed to be confirmed in a bipartisan vote next week.
Most Republicans on the Judiciary panel, including ranking Sen. Jeff Sessions and second-ranking Sen. Chuck Grassley, say they will vote no. At least one Republican — Sen. Lindsey Graham — is siding with party moderates who plan to join Democrats in backing Sotomayor.
