Sonia Sotomayor Wisely Chooses a Non-Answer on Gay Marriage

What, you thought Supreme Court justice hopeful Sonia Sotomayor was going to meet senators’ litmus test on same-sex marriage? Oh hellz no!

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) tried to get her on the record about whether she would allow a state to grant marriage licenses to gays, referencing the Minnesota case Baker vs. Nelson. But she wasn’t budging, declining to give a real answer because of the cases moving their way through the courts.

Watch the above clip, and you tell us: Any indication, to your perspective, that she’s leaning one way or the other?

(Sotomayor also dodged questions on abortion. None of her deflection should be terribly surprising.)
