THe DC Examiner has published short summaries of four potention Obama replacements for retiring associate justice David Souter. Of all the names that I have heard so far, Sonya Sotamayor seems the most likely Obama appointment. First, she is a woman. Second, she is Hispanic. These are vital to Obama's hyper view of identity politics. Thirdly, she shares President Obama's view that the Constitution and federal law are irrelevant if liberal orthodoxy dissents. Barry Hussein Soweto Obama, the "constitutional professor," has made it clear that justice involves redistribution of wealth not equal protection under the law. Sotamayor, too, has made it clear that Article III of the Constitution should be ignored and justices should be legislators rather than jurists. The silver lining is that she, or whichever Leftist Barry Hussein Soweto Obama appoints, will be replacing one of the most consistent Leftist judges on the court.
