SS On The SC
President Obama picking Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court is disappointing since it was so predictable. She was the strong favorite from the start, and, of those on the short list, probably the least inspired choice.
Her past is coming up, such as her statement that appeals courts make policy (which is the belief of most people in the legal field, but not a politic thing to say), and her speech about the importance of a judge's sex and ethnicity, but it really doesn't matter. She will be the next Justice and the Republicans would be wasting their energy to put up any serious resistance.
Poor Justice Stevens, the only Protestant on the Court.
