    Have you read about the latest choices president Obama is considering for the Supreme Court?

    Who would you pick?

    Why?

    What do you like or dislike about the potential nominees?

    From what I have read thus far I like Sonia Sotomayor. Anything I should know about her?

    I think it should make your stomach turn that the focus will be on judges "looking out for the little guy" rather than upholding the law.

    Judge Andrew Napolitano is who I'd pick, because I believe he'd interpret the Constitution as it's written rather than what he wants it to say. Though I'm guessing he's not even been considered for the position.

    In that case, Robert Bork is fit, rested and ready.

    All would be forgiven.

    If Obama picks a centrist, or even a semi right wing judge, the left, already infuriated at Obama, will have an absolute meltdown.

    It would be fun to see.

    I have missed any articles where Sonia Sotomayor is looking out for the little guy. I did notice several articles that others reflect that she is very capable.

    I don't know about Sonya, but Barack Obama has not been bashful about that being his criteria.

    Lots of articles on that.

    Want I should find you some?

    No. I would like more information on the potential nominees. Particularly more information on Sonia Sotomayor. I'm not interested in second quessing president Obama's criteria. Every president has a criteria and president Obama is not the first. That merely comes from being the president.

    I don't care about Sonia. She is a accessory after the fact.

    Obama is on the record as stating he believes a SCOTUS has to look out for the little guy.

    Deal with that.
