Obama and the courts

Mark Sherman of the Associated Press pens an article on the dozens of federal judgeships waiting to be filled by President Obama. Sherman quotes Nan Aron of the left wing Alliance for Justice, demonstrating the appalling understanding of the judiciary by the left:

Judges appointed by Obama can be expected to side more often with "workers, consumers, homeowners, women, and people of color who were discriminated against," Aron said.


I thought judges were supposed to follow the law as promulgated by Congress and as signed by the President (and follow the Constitution) -- not side with this interest group or that demographic. But alas, the left sees the judiciary as merely a tool for enforcing its wishes without the constraints of a democratic process.
