The duty of a judge is to make decisions based by applying the facts to the law and in a manner consistent with the Constitution. Any nominee should be committed to this basic standard.
President Obama should seek a highly qualified person who meets the above standard and whose appointment would improve the diversity of the Court. Diversity comes in many forms, including gender, race, ethnicity and professional background. President Obama should also keep in mind that while political activists tend come from the ideological fringes, statistically valid voter research surveys make it clear that the country is in the "sensible center."
