    "WE" as in we the people who actually give a crap that the supreme court has Judges who represent the ENTIRE scope of America across the board.

    Tell me who do you think the President should have nominated that would more support the views you want represented in the Supreme Court?

    But where they are exclusive or contradictory, the constitution must win, so your heart doesn't matter.
    Let's figure it out.

    Why don't you find them... are you talking about the one where she said a latino female is wiser then a white man?

    In a speech published in the Berkeley La Raza Law Journal in 2002, Judge Sotomayor offered her own interpretation of this jurisprudence. "Justice [Sandra Day] O'Connor has often been cited as saying that a wise old man and wise old woman will reach the same conclusion in deciding cases," she declared. "I am . . . not so sure that I agree with the statement. First, . . . there can never be a universal definition of wise. Second, 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."

    In April, the Supreme Court overturned 6-3 her 2007 ruling in Riverkeeper v. EPA in which she found that the EPA could not consider cost-benefit analysis in judging whether companies need to upgrade to the best technology available, even when the costs were wholly disproportionate to the benefits. And in the 2006 case of Merrill Lynch v. Dabit, the Court ruled 8-0 to overturn her position that a state class-action lawsuit against Merrill Lynch was not pre-empted by federal law.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    A intelligent latino woman would be just the change this country needs on the Supreme Court..

    The chances are really good that the will act in more of a responsible manner than any of the old white farts that have been in Washington over the last eight years who were only concerned about their party. That's why they had no problems with dragging our country into the sewer before they got booted out.

    Bye Bye old white fart politics.....good riddance..

    Yeah, cause the constitution should be judged based on ones personal race.

    Here is the speech in its entirety where she discusses her Latin background and the effect it has on the bench.

    I am not upset with that quote because reaching a better "conclusion" does not mean that she is calling the old white men less wise but possibly that her conclusion could be better becasuse of her experiences which are diferent than the old white men.

    So it's not a take away from the old white men but an additive by her experiences.

    Isn't that possible !!!!!
