    Of course not, but "we" don't get to pick the nominee.

    If you're a traditional conservative, then of the entire list that Obama was considering, she's probably one of the best.

    And you're basing this on...? Can you share some of his opinions that you find particularly flawed?

    See, 95% of people who say things like this are just parroting the passively-racist trope about how Thomas is stupid and just votes however Scalia tells him. Since this is a terribly uninformed position, I'm hoping that you are part of that 5% that actually has an educated critique of Thomas's jurisprudence. I look forward to your response.

    Now I'm curious. Are there really reasons to hate him other than apparently being a moderate?

    If you want to call him a moderate...

    He ran as a actual conservative, to the base here in SC. He had hardly settled in to Washington before he secured his position as one of the "aisle-crossers", the "gang of 14" who tried to make themselves powerbrokers of the Bush judicial nominations. He's consistently ignored the will of his constituency in more issues than I can remember. He's got his nose so far up John McCain's @** its a wonder he can breathe.

    He's not a "moderate", he's a self-aggrandizing power-broker who has demonstrated he is NOT the man he claimed to be when he originally ran for Senate.

    Apparently, she isn't the racist activist that many have made her out to be. Thoughts?

    Thoughts? YES!

    I think Republicans will praise her and vote for her because they, the Republicans, have no clue and are basically stupid.

    Now there's a thought!

    This doesn't seem very reasonable.

    Re: Sotomayor draws praise from GOP critics

    I learned recently that judges were originally supposed to go though congressional hearings not so that the senators can see if they agree with the judges or not, but to see if they are qualified. If this is true, then there is no reason to vote against Sotomayor- she is plenty qualified. Plus, it's not like Obama is going to put forward a better option, and it's not like her replacing Souter will make any difference on the court.

    I agree.

    However, if you will remember, not that long ago, Mr. Bush put up two very qualified individuals for the Court, John G. Roberts, Jr. and Samuel A. Alito. Gee, guess who voted against them.....Bobo.

    If the Republicans were smart....not ever going to happen....they would throw every road block and administrative monkey wrench they can find to block this nomination. There ought not be a single Republican vote for this nominee.

    But like I said, IF the Republicans were smart. They are not. There will be many Republican votes for this Supreme court Mistake.

    So because someone else was a douchebag in the past, the Republicans should act like douchebags now?

    If someone wants to oppose Sotomayor because they don't believe she'd be a good Justice, that's fine. If they're opposing her simply because Obama opposed Alito/Roberts, then they're an idiot.
