Sonia Sotomayor Could Be on Obama's Short List for Replacing Souter

Post by submarinepainter on Mon May 11, 2009 5:56 pm

Indeed, analysts largely agree that Obama is looking for a candidate with a hard-knocks background and wants to appoint either a woman or a minority jurist. That puts Sonia Sotomayor, a woman of Puerto Rican descent from the Bronx who is a federal appeals court judge, atop most short lists. Others mentioned include Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Circuit Court Judge Diane Wood, and Pamela Karlan and Kathleen Sullivan, both professors at Stanford Law School.





Whoever is finally nominated will surely face stiff questioning on civil rights issues before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which confirms justices. Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, who replaced now Democrat Arlen Specter as the top Republican on the committee, was himself denied a federal judgeship in 1986 before the very same committee. His nomination was torpedoed mostly because of his handling of civil rights cases during his time as a U.S. attorney in Alabama. And no matter whom Obama settles on as a nominee, Sessions and the GOP aren't likely to back down. In the end, the hearts and empathy of those who judge the nominee may be as important as the views of the jurist

I think "heart and empathy" are wonderful qualities for a lot of jobs but SCOTUS needs people who will uphold the Constitution .

It's no surprise that Obama nominated a dimwitted socialist, is it?

what are you basing your comment on? and don't say "because all dems
are socialists" or "because obama only makes bad decisions" or some
other ignorant bs like that, please

if you have a problem with
her because of the rulings she's made in the past - please explain,
otherwise show some respect - i don't think a "dimwit" can get so far
up the legal ladder just based on her background and sex (positive
discrimination or whatever) so prove why you think she sucks

I am leery because I believe she may not believe in the 2nd amendment as I do and her case against the firemen was troublesome. Other than that I am not worried at all.
