Senator Jeff Sessions was victimized by Ted Kennedy and stabbed in the back by Arlen Specter in 1986 when nominated for a federal judgeship by Ronald Reagan. Now he's the ranking Republican on the committee that will grill President Obama's nominee(s) to the Supreme Court.
Sessions is a quiet, thoughtful man, but intense nonetheless. When I hear him talk, I am reminded of the stock character in Hollywood movies....the lawyer with the southern accent who is underestimated by everyone....but who is the smartest guy in the room.
