New pick for the supreme court

Here is your link.

From the article:

President Barack Obama named federal appeals judge Sonia Sotomayor as the nation's first Hispanic Supreme Court justice on Tuesday, praising her as "an inspiring woman" with both the intellect and compassion to interpret the Constitution wisely.

What does "compassion" have to do with the Constitution?

Seems to me that the process for rendering decisions should go like this:

Does the Constitution authorize congress to do ________________?

If yes, then ___________________ is Constitutional. If no, then __________________ is not Constitutional.

How the justice feels about the issue is irrelevant. Compassion leads people to ignore the rule of law. That is a luxury we dare not allow.

She's an activist judge with a long history of advancing her own agenda through the court. There's a speech she made where she brags about it and mocks the idea that judges should interpret the law based on constitutionality.
