Nice try, Mr. President, but I’m not buying the poor-choice-of-words defense for Sonia Sotomayor. “I’m sure she would have restated it,” President Obama told NBC News about his Supreme Court nominee’s now-famous 32 words: "I would hope that a...

Why Obama Picked Sotomayor

By Edward Schumacher-Matos I should be giddy about Sonia Sotomayor, but I can’t stop thinking about Alberto Gonzales. Former President George W. Bush’s former attorney general was supposed to be the first Hispanic to be nominated to the Supreme Court....

First Thoughts on Sotomayor

A few thoughts on the Sotomayor nomination: * Conservatives need to understand that Sotomayor’s reputation for intellectual lightness and a fiery temperament -- examined by Jeffrey Rosen of The New Republic -- doesn’t really matter much. The only thing...

Sonia Sotomayor vs. Kim Jong Il

Kim Jong Il, I’m told, is a leader with a few deficiencies. Add this to the list: terrible news judgment. The mercurial Stalinist who runs North Korea, after all, decided to test a nuclear weapon yesterday -- Memorial Day....

Nancy Drew Rules!

Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg are a generation apart, but they share a childhood passion for the girl sleuth. When I was writing a column a couple years ago about my own experience with Nancy Drew, I phoned...

Who Will Confront Obama? Cheney, Gingrich and...?

"Mark my words," Joe Biden prophesied in late October 2008, "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama.” And so it was to be. North Korea’s testing nukes, Iran’s testing missiles, Russia’s testing its ability...
