Feelings, nothing more than feelings, whoa, whoa, whoa

What Mrs. Clinton will gives us as Supreme Court justices.  Outlaws.

JONAH GOLDBERG: "In her first answer of the night, Hillary Clinton was asked about the Supreme Court. She said justices should stand up to the rich and side with the people or some such treacle. It should support the usual favored groups, etc. It should fight big money and the powerful. And so on. Only problem: That’s not what justices are supposed to do. The Judicial Oath goes like this: “I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as _________ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.” The relevant point is the same. Standing up to the rich is not the Supreme Court’s job. Standing up for the law is. And, sometimes, the law is on the side of the rich and powerful. You could look it up."
Remember the "wise Latina" Sotomayor fantasized about hitting one of her fellow judges with a bat. That's how judging with emotions and favoritism works.
