    President Obama is expressing hope that his first Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, will not be blocked by Senate Republicans. However, while a U.S. senator in 2006, Obama -- along with 24 colleagues -- unsuccessfully attempted to filibuster the nomination of Justice Samuel Alito, who had been nominated by George W. Bush.

    That's what I've been saying. I remember hearing all kinds of talk about the Democrats wanting to filibuster when Alito was being confirmed, but yet, they get all antsy when they hear of Republicans wanting to filibuster Sotomayor. To me it shows double standards.
