    Is Sotomayor racist? Do her views and comments disqualify her for the position in your view?


    I ask because this case may come before the highest court around the time she does:

    The real losers are the citizens of New Haven, who didn't get the most qualified firefighters. What a shame that the entire process had to be argued and litigated through the prism of race.

    Don't want to elaborate?

    The word 'supremely' is relatively misused in this context.

    Anyway, a ruling on the case in question is expected Monday. Could the ruling impact her confirmation?

        Why in imagination? You don't suppose that if the court rules (for example) unanimously against the way she herself ruled in lower court ruling that her judicial fitness might not be questioned in reflection? Or vice versa? The question doesn't have to be a partisan political one to simply consider it.


        Oh, and are you trying to ridicule people from Texas?

          The bf is FROM Texas.  I have familiarized myself with the dialect.

          Nice try...

          And SOL, you'all, concerning the confirmation.

    Why that attitude? Do you want what's best for the country, or to stick it to your percieved 'enemies'?

    Well, now that Sotomayor's lower court ruling has been overturned by the Supreme Court (thankfully) we will see how that plays out during her confirmation hearings.

      It will be interesting to see how it plays out. She is quoted as saying, "All of the legal defense funds out there, they're looking for people with Court of Appeals experience because it is -- Court of Appeals is where policy is made.  And I know, and I know this is on tape, and I should never say that because we don't make law, I know. (laughing)"

      She clearly wants to make her position as a SC justice into something the Constitution expressly forbids. The legislature makes laws, the SC interprets their constitutionality, but she wants to "make laws" under the guise of "making policy".
