National Review's Ed Whelan on Judge Sotomayor

National Review's Ed Whelan on Judge Sotomayor

Ed Whelan a former law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, has served in positions of responsibility in all three branches of the federal government. He is a regular contributor to National Review's The Corner and Bench Memo blogs and he serves as President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

We discussed everything from the absurd (Democrats warning Republicans to be "exceedingly careful") to the now-infamous "wise Latina" comment to her ruling in the troubling New haven firefighetr case.

Bottom line: Her judicial philosophy is troubling and she should be vigorously quesioned about it. That said, elctions have consequences, and someone like her on the court is one one of them. In Democrat circles, she is a mainstream jurist and will be confirmed, but not before what Krauthammer described as a "teachable moment' about the differneces between conservative and liberal judicial philosohy.
