Obama's SCOTUS nominee: courts make policy

JammieWearingFool has a quick analysis of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor. It's not good news. His post includes a video of Ms. Sotomayor explaining how courts make policy.

Lawhawk comments as well.
Sotamayor fits the kind of approach that President Obama seeks - a liberal interpretation of the US Constitution where the Constitution is a living breathing document. The case against her is pretty persuasive, but there is nothing that the GOP can do to derail this nomination.

The only way this nomination gets derailed is if the Obama Administration didn't pick up on details that will embarrass and suggest that Sotamayor is an inappropriate candidate for the Supreme Court. That's not all that far fetched given the way that the Obama Administration has repeatedly botched nominations for a host of positions, repeatedly selecting tax cheats and those with ethical flaps.
