I am all but compelled to post this, but Justice Sotomayor has sufficient votes to be confirmed: http://www.scotusblog.com/wp/c-span-majority-of-senators-to-vote-yes-on-sotomayor/

Not official yet, there needs to be swearing to be done (swearing in by Her Honour and swearing by the GOP. Geddit? haha).

Not the best pick, as I said this could have bearing on a few key issues. But it certainly does better than any of the Bush appointees whose activism was spread across the spectrum of cases. But, alas, I dream of days when the title of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of these United States was a title respected by every American, and both sides of the political divide would respect the others’ choice. I dream of days when all Justices were like Justice David Hacker Souter. You will be missed. Enjoy the summer trails in your beloved New Hampshire.
