    I don't know much about her, but according to the article she is experienced enough for the role. They also bring up an interesting tidbit....



    Thoughts?




    “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life,” -Judge Sotomayor


    a video surfaced of Judge Sotomayor asserting in 2005 that a “court of appeals is where policy is made.” She then immediately adds: “And I know — I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don’t make law. I know. O.K. I know. I’m not promoting it. I’m not advocating it. I’m — you know.”




    Awesome, another race baiting bnch legislating idiot. That's all I need to know about her.

    Exactly my thoughts. I couldn't be more please with his selection of a strong Latina to represent on the SCOTUS.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Sotomayor nominated to high court — first Hispanic

    Sotomayor nominated to high court — first Hispanic - Yahoo! News

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama named federal appeals judge Sonia Sotomayor as the nation's first Hispanic Supreme Court justice on Tuesday, praising her as "an inspiring woman" with both the intellect and compassion to interpret the Constitution wisely.
    Obama said Sotomayor has more experience as a judge than any current member of the high court had when nominated, adding she has earned the "respect of colleagues on the bench," the admiration of lawyers who appear in her court and "the adoration of her clerks."

    Is it ever a good idea to have activist judges on the court? I wonder.

    Re: Obama to pick Sotomayer for Supreme Court

    What disturbs me about the pick are the following:

    1) The New Haven Case - Ironically, she could be hearing the final appeal of a decision that she herself had made.

    2) Ordering baseball club owners to settle with the players, in the strike that resulted in no World Series in 1995.

    3) Her controversial statement that whether someone before her court was a man or a woman, or the race of someone before her court, would be factors in her rulings.


    Sum it all up, and Sotomayor is an activist judge with an activist agenda. I support a Republican filibuster on this nominee.

    Here is her bio, and for those who value the Constitution, it is not pretty.

    Bench legislating is in the eye of the beholder.

    It's the Supreme Court, not Congress.

    Their genders and races are completely irrelevant. Only their ability to interpret maters.

    Don't care what she said. She's only one of nine.

    Besides, my comment was about "bench legislation" in general. For example, Roe v Wade was not legislating from the bench. It upheld the unenumerated constitutional right to privacy.

    I'd like to see more of our unenumerated rights - drug use, prostitution, suicide, assisted suicide, gambling, etc - protected in similar fashion.

    Do you ever not twist the truth when speaking of people you oppose politically?

    She admitted that the quote that you cite was a mistake, that she regretted saying it and that she was wrong so why the "hellh0und" are you quoting her out of context without the complete story?

    We all know why you did it - your transparency is crystal clear.
