Feelings, Nothing More Than Feelings

It was a sad moment when Barack Obama announced today that any person he would consider for a Supreme Court nomination would need to have empathy for people and that the nominee will have to consider the way that the decisions made by the court will affect people.

Justice is supposed to be blind, but that is not what I'm hearing Obama wants for jurists on his court. This is an open admission by our President that the rule of law is over and that the Constitution should take a second seat to how people feel about the law. In other words, legislating from the bench is just hunky-dory with Barack.
