Sotomayor and 2012

FirstRead makes a point about Sotomayor and 2012 ambitions.
Also remember that John Roberts and Samuel Alito became Democratic presidential primary litmus tests -- explaining why anyone with White House ambitions (Obama, Hillary Clinton) voted against them. The Sotomayor vote for Republicans thinking about 2012 might play out similarly.


However, there's also that Latino box. Do you please your base to win the primary and anger Latino voters in the general?

Most of the 2012 hopefuls don't have to cast a vote. Romney and Huckabee have come out hard against her, but I would think alot of them might be go low profile now and choose to fight the next nominee.

    The Republicans are against so many possible people and choices, only an Orin Hatch would meet their approval. He won't pass either, he was writing bills with Kennedy.

    I guess Rush Limbaugh would please them.

    Being an exclusive party leaves them few choices that are in line with their principles.
