You and I probably won't agree on a lot of things but I dislike Sotomayor mainly because she, like many other political picks, implies that she will use emotion when deciding cases.
In deciding law, emotion must be left out. Law exists to separate emotional reactions from rational reactions.
A comparison would be a lynch mob killing someone because they want justice now when they haven't reviewed if that person even did the deed.
Since it is handed out for nothing people treat it as such.
They don't research a candidates principals and just take them at their word when it may not even be logically possible.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
It is stunning to me how many of you people THINK you have an understanding of applying facts to laws and think that there's only one way to interpret the law. If that was the case, we wouldn't need a Supreme Court or the Supreme Court rulings would all be 9-0.

Not quite the "racist" group that the "right" is making them out to be.
That correct way is the way of Marbury v Madison--which examined the case, considered the applicable laws, weighed the statutory laws against the Constitution of the United States, and viewed the case objectively in light of what the law says. That correct way is to state with specificity what the law is, what the law allows, within the confines of the Constitution, and leave the notional questions of moral right and moral wrong to the legislatures.
There is most assuredly one correct manner of interpretation. To argue or pretend otherwise is simply wrong.
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
