Yes or no? Better choice than Sotomayor or more of the same?

  • Difficult question. Better, I think. But I actually haven't been following her that much. What's your opinion, NP?

  • Better.

    But she's a politician. Do we ever really know for sure?

  • I think... I would like "more" from her.

    I've decided I'm not going to get my panties in a wad about it. She's going to be confirmed, it's pretty rare that they wouldn't, and the GOP is just pounding to pound because they know a lot of us are after their jobs. It's like a large dog and pony show.

  • I still want to see how she does in the hearings. In general, I think we have way too much Ivy on the court - and that it's been an issue for a long time. How do you really get a variety of perspectives analyzing a law when they've all been churned out of the same few schools with the same rules and biases?

  • That's a good point, NP. I hadn't thought of it that way. It would be better if the mix was more "mixed", not so much Ivy League law school. What good is diversity in color and sex if their education is cookie cutter same?

  • I don't know much about her except she's a politician. You see one you see them all! I don't trust any of them except I may trust a woman more than a man. A woman politician is a terribly difficult job as it consists principally with dealing with men!

  • As long as Obama does not get to replace a conservative judge, I will be happy.

    If he does there will be nobody to stop him from his socialist agenda, and turning himself into another Chavez or Castro...

  • She has some serious problem with the military. They are really looking into that now. I still think she will be confirmed to the detriment of the Country. Remember this is a lifetime position.

  • I would love to see a white protestant male be nominated. My husband thinks his demographic has been over looked, swept under the carpet, vilified, or turned into the worse thing to be in this country. He wonders who represents his interest.
