Meet the Press, NBC, May 31, 2009 (Video and Transcript)

President Obama picks Sonia Sotomayor to fill retiring Justice David Souter's seat on the Supreme Court. Will her confirmation be swift or will we see a tough and partisan battle? We get an inside look at what to expect from the two men in charge of the confirmation hearings on the Hill: Chairman of the Judiciary Committee Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and the committee's Ranking Member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL). As the nation's economic state continues to cause fear among many Americans, how are key businesses faring and what are the prospects for a recovery? The CEOs of three major companies weigh in from the nation's financial hub - the floor of the New York Stock Exchange: Caterpillar's Jim Owens, Google's Eric Schmidt, and Xerox's Anne Mulcahy. Plus a roundtable: BBC's Katty Kay, NBC's Brian Williams & author Richard Wolffe.
