“Srinivasan Confirmation Hearing A Love Fest”

So reports McClatchy’s Suits & Sentences blog:

Sri Srinivasan seems assured of winning approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee, following the conclusion of a 90-minute confirmation hearing that featured lots of bipartisan praise and no particularly tough questions.

With Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah saying he supports Srinivasan, and Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas throwing softball questions and stories of their long friendship, there appear to be no obstacles to committee approval.

I haven’t watched the hearing yet , but it’s available here (click “live webcast”).
