Feinstein: Sotomayor told me she, um, chose her words poorly

“She said, ‘Obviously it was a poor choice of words if you read on and read the rest of my speech you wouldn’t be concerned with it but it was a poor choice of words,'” Feinstein told reporters.

Feinstein, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, added that she and Sotomayor “generally” discussed the issue of abortion, and that the judge believes strongly in legal precedent.
