Sonia Sotomayor has said repeatedly, "'I would hope that a wise Latina woman, with the richness of her experiences, would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."
Investors Business Daily editorializes (how they read MY mind, I don't know) that her statement at her confirmation hearings, "What I was talking about was the obligation of judges to examine what they're feeling as they're adjudicating a case and to ensure that that's not influencing the outcome," is the kind of liberal "I meant the opposite of what I actually said" speak that we have come to expect from liberal, activist judges.
For what it's worth, her statements at the hearings are all we need to know about how she will approach her job from the bench. Like all Liberal judges, she'll read the words in the Constitution, consider them, then decide it means whatever the hell she wants it to mean right now.
Fair enough? We get what we paid for.
