Obama Chooses Sonia Sotomayor.
Cable news networks are reporting that President Obama has chosen to nominate Sonia Sotomayor for the US Supreme Court.
Via Drudge, AP sources: Obama picks Sotomayor for high court
President Barack Obama tapped federal appeals Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court on Tuesday, officials said, making her the first Hispanic in history picked to wear the robes of a justice.
If confirmed by the Senate, Sotomayor, 54, would succeed retiring Justice David Souter. Two officials described Obama’s decision on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement had been made.
She will be the first Puerto Rican Justice. That is nice, but my concern is that she will uphold the Constitution.
Sotomayor’s decisions: As I asked, does Sotomayor believe that questions of jurisprudence are all about identity politics, or was she simply posing in front of [a La Raza] audience?
That’s not very surprising in so far that Sotomayor seems to be the perfect judge from Obama’s perspective. She is a woman, from a minority, she is left-wing, and she believes that judges have the responsibility to make law. That’s exactly what he wants, of course: an activist judge.
