A war because, as Quin Hillyer writes, Sonia Sotomayor is:
The most radical possible choice for the Supreme Court, a woman whose speeches and writings are so obscenely racialist that no white male could possible get away with saying anything like those things and live, professionally, for even a single additional day.
Obama's emphasis today, in introducing Sotomayor, on biography over all else was absolutely sickening. And despicable.
To which all decent Americans ought to respond: No, it does NOT make a difference whether she grew up rich or poor, black or white or Hispanic, left-handed or right-handed, ill or healthy, Jew or gentile.
All that matters is whether or not she will uphold her oath to serve the Constitution and laws as written, including the explicit and tacit restrictions therein on judicial authority.
In America, judges are not supposed to be fonts of wisdom, not supposed to "feel" the right things and not supposed to be demigods purveying some sort of cosmic notion of fairness.
Instead, they are supposed to apply the laws as provided to them by the political branches within these United States. Period.
