In listing his requirements for a Supreme Court pick, President Obama highlighted “empathy.” Americans deserve a judge who decides cases on the basis of constitutional principles, not personal feelings. And we deserve to know whether Judge Sotomayor will uphold those principles laid down by the Founding Fathers, or whether she will live up to her claim that the courts are “where policy is made.”
