Left, Right & Center: Sotomayor, North Korea and GM

Is Sonia Sotomayor a judicial activist? A racist? Is empathy a good or bad thing in a judge? Arianna wonders what the GOP thinks it's doing by attacking her, but Tony says conservatives have legitimate reasons to object to her based on their own philosophies of jurisprudence -- a slight chortle here about Rush Limbaugh's motives.... Matt wants to know what the role of the court is: to lead or follow society's direction? North Korea's nuclear activity is an unwelcome challenge but Tony says only China has the kind of influence to get them to scale back -- and they've chose not to pull those strings. What's in GM's future? Will the free market or government influence the kinds of cars they should be producing? And, can Obama succeed in reforming health care?
