58. do you mean, votes conservatively more of the time?
The issue is a bit misleading, there's clarification in the rachel maddow thread in general discussion: presidential on the reasoning behind the 95% of the time thing, it will likely talk you down. Like Turley, I probably would have preferred someone like Dianna Wood, but Turley did say that he agrees with Sotomayor's rulings for the most part, just that he wishes her opinions showed more dept.
