dont think they can...but i could be wrong..
The Republican's can filibuster but as O'reilly pointed out it would be a most foolish and futile endeavor. If they oppose this woman the end result is she will be confirmed and they will lose Hispanic support which they otherwise may be able to gain.
If the Republicans allow her to go in unscathed they can still woo Hispanic in 2010 and 2012, the Hispanic community is by and large conservative in nature. All in all this was a very wise move for Obama and at best a draw for the Republicans.
This seemed to be the most important reason for her being picked. Our president is more of a glory hound as president then he was as a nobody, do nothing Senator.

He is just doing his usual pandering to one group or another. I also cannot stand to listen to him speak. I feel like he's laughing at me while he tries to make himself look so damn smart. The man knows nothing of what he speaks.
I'm not tolerating Political Correctness anymore, from now on it's tell it like it is.

sotomayor and janet are the same, anti gun, anti constitution and anti american. that is why your good friend barack hussein obama, the tyrant from kenya and anti american in chief has nominated her. folks need to get past this left/right paradigm crap and take our government back. of the people,by the people for the people, not of the bankers,by the bankers for the bankers. you can lump special interests and big buisiness in there to.
DOWN WITH ALL THE TYRANNICAL CRIMINALS, RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION

That statement gives me the impression that she might tend to be prejudiced toward Latinos in court(?)
