The legacy of Obama
The longest lasting legacy of any President's administration is felt with the judges he appoints to the Supreme Court. That's why the Constitution mandates that he appoint them with the advice and consent of the US Senate, being the representatives of the states' interests. The confirmation hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee begin today for Judge Sotomayor. She's a sure thing to get confirmed, barring a bombshell that nobody knows about. The job for conservatives on the committee is to make sure the American people know who Obama is appointing to the Supreme Court so that when she casts votes, we know at whose step to lay the blame. And if they can show what a far-left, activist judge she is, maybe the democrats on the committee will think twice before casting their aye vote.
