    than Scalia's, but that doesn't change the fact that she's a politician. A "judicial philosophy" is a politics by definition.

    If you're arguing she's not as ruthless in foisting her politics on America than Scalia is, then I agree.

    It's OK to acknowledge that SCOTUS justices have political ends. They are not gods, after all. They're people with biases and ideas about how the law is to be interpreted and the ends which it serves.
