Senator Ted Kennedy Holds Conference Call with Bloggers on Sandra Day O'Connor's Resignation

Senator Ted Kennedy just held a conference call with a group of left-wing bloggers to discuss Sandra Day O’Connor’s resignation.

After thanking everyone for joining the call, Senator Kennedy said, “We could not have anticipated what we are facing.”

Kennedy has participated in over 20 Supreme Court nominations during his career. He thanked O’Connor for her service to our country, reiterating that she was a mainstream conservative Justice.

Kennedy said, “I hope the President will select someone who served as she did. I urge the president to consult with the Senate on the nominee choice.” He noted that the Senate’s advice role “must not be given the short shift.”
