Sotomayor Watch #2

Stuart Taylor in the National Journal Magazine explains Judge Sonia Sotomayor's "Identity Politics" beliefs and why she is the pick of BHO and the Dems. His closing paragraphs summarize the situation quite clearly:

"In one of her few explosive cases, Sotomayor voted (without writing an opinion) to join two colleagues in upholding what I see as raw racial discrimination by New Haven, Conn. The city denied promotions to the firefighters who did best on a test of job-related skills because none was black. (See my column, "New Haven's Injustice Shouldn't Disappear.")

The Supreme Court is widely expected to reverse that decision in June. And even if a devotee of identity politics fills retiring Justice David Souter's seat, she will not have enough votes to encourage greater use of such racial preferences. Not yet."
