    You mean the firefighter case where she went with established case law and the supreme court overruled what lower courts already confirmed?

    You do realize that at the time of her ruling, this was the precedent? Hello! Knock knock..she followed the precedent set by the Supreme Court. I thought you people did not like "Activist Judges". Oh wait, forgot that Activist Judge is only a judge who does not rule in your favor. On a roll today...this is another FAIL. Congrats.

    The SCOTUS is no place for race based politics. Judges interpret the law, not legislate. I'm proud that there were plenty of people that voted against her racist butt. Those are real Americans.

    I'm not interested in precedent. I'm interested in what's right and what's wrong. Her decision in the firefighter case was, wrong.

    Ah HA, so you want an Activist Judge who will disregard the law, and simply rule on how they see fit.

    It will be intereting too see just how many of those who voted against her still have a job after the next election cycle.

    I guessing not very many...

    Well Republican favorably has been sinking with Latino voters ever since she was nominated. I have no doubt that in 2010 and 2012 this will get a lot of play on Hispanic radio, TV, and papers. Already they have Tom Tancredo giving them a really bad image with Hispanics.

    You what I love is seeing the projections that even Texas will be a blue state soon.

    Psssst . . . precedent, contrary to incorrect opinion, is not law.

    Do you remember Ann Richards? One of the most powerful, charismatic and intelligent politicians ever.
