51. Really? The head of the liberal Constitution Accountability Center has high praise for Sotomayor.
Edited on Tue May-26-09 10:04 AM by ClarkUSA
"We already know that she is a brilliant lawyer who is committed to ruling based on the Constitution and the law, not on her own personal political views," said Doug Kendall, president of the liberal Constitution Accountability Center, in an e-mailed statement this morning.

However, she is strongly opposed by conservative groups, who -- like her supporters -- began to issue statements criticizing her nomination even before it was announced. And even the Obama administration had differed with one of her more controversial decisions.

"Judge Sotomayor is a liberal judicial activist of the first order who thinks her own personal political agenda is more important that the law as written," said Wendy E. Long, counsel to the Judicial Confirmation Network, in a statement e-mailed to reporters this morning. "She thinks that judges should dictate policy, and that one's sex, race, and ethnicity ought to affect the decisions one renders from the bench."
