Marcus Empathizes with Obama

Ruth Marcus attempts to defend Obama's promise to nominate "empathetic" judges to the Supreme Court.
I admit to a bit of wincing at the word "empathize," with its sensitive-new-age-guy aura. If I thought Obama was advocating a pick-your-favorite-side approach, I'd be on the barricades too. But his position is not anything like this absurd caricature. Indeed, it reflects a more thoughtful, more nuanced understanding of the judicial role than Roberts' seductive but flawed umpire analogy.

Sounds more like she was against it before Obama was for it.

Question for Marcus: Does she agree with her "liberal" colleague Richard Cohen (see below), that denying a fireman a promotion because of his race (caucasian) is an unconstitutional violation of his rights as an American citizen? Or is that just a "more thoughtful and nuanced understanding" of how the world works (through racial mau-mauing) "outside the arid confines of the courthouse"?

Meanwhile, Richard Epstein writes that there is a place for empathy, but it's not on the bench.

I rarely comment, however i did a few searching and wound up here "Marcus Empathizes with Obama".
And I actually do have a couple of questions for
you if you do not mind. Is it only me or does it appear like some of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead individuals?

:-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

I leave a comment each time I like a post on a website or if I have something to add to the discussion.
Usually it's caused by the sincerness displayed
in the post I browsed. And after this post "Marcus Empathizes with Obama".
I was moved enough to drop a thought :-) I do have a few questions
for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or do
some of these remarks look like left by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to follow everything new you
have to post. Would you list the complete urls of all
your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
