Conservatives for Sotomayor

I have known the judge for 13 years, and found myself assisting her and sometimes at odds with her professionally. She hired me as a summer intern in her chambers when she served on the federal district court in New York in the 1990s. While that obviously makes me somewhat biased, I think two incidents from that time make the case for her temperament…

I am a conservative, and I did not vote for President Obama. It is perfectly understandable for conservatives to say that they will not vote for anyone the president picks, but at that point the debate, if you can call it that, is over. For those of us who think that intellectual rigor and fairness are the crucial factors, no matter which party the president hails from, there is no question that Judge Sotomayor should be confirmed.
