It never fails. Let someones name be put forward as a possible Dem presidential candidate or judicial nominee, and the MSM will find a way to characterize him as a centrist.
We didnt have to wait long for the tradition to be honored regarding Sonia Sotomayor, who conventional wisdom pegs as the frontrunner to replace David Souter.
On todays Good Morning America, George Stephanopoulos declared Sotomayor not just a centrist, but a . . . strong centrist.

Steph calls Sotomayor “strong centrist” ping to Today show list.
ok stumpy...evidence to back up your claim please...but reporters don’t ask tough questions anymore i guess...or easy ones either...
Just a little digging reveals she is, and has been, always a liberal.
I guess when you are a liberal, the necessity to believe you run in the center is the only way you can console your conscious.
Hey, they called Obammie the Commie a centrist, too. Let’s pray for good health, long lives, and long careers for the 4 on the USSC that are actually defending the US Constitution, protector of our liberties against tyrants.
I've seen all the proof I need.This Sotomeyer,I understand,has recently ruled that gays,lesbians and transgenders can't have their property taken from them through eminent domain.Sounds like a centrist to me!
Off topic but Judge Napolitano just blasted Barry for declaring Chrysler guilty during an ongoing trial—it is irresponsible for a president to take sides and try to influence the outcome of a federal trial!
"Of course I lied to America about Obama's religion. It is my job to lie.
Just as it is the job of ABC News to lie and destroy America, American security, and ultimately, the Pentagon."
Obama is not going to appoint a centrist, unless by “centrist” you mean “left winger.”
The fact that they are discussing her in terms of her policy preferences and not her judicial philosophy is just more proof that we no longer even pretend that the job of a judge is not to “make law or policy”.
Sounds like Obama wants to reward his Hispanic base with a Supreme Court justice and Setphanopoulos is floating a trial balloon to flush out the objections to the proposed judge. The must have been the strategy discussed at the morning conference call between Emanuel, Begala, Carville, and Stephie.
And FYI,boys and girls....a local Boston TV station reported this morning that our beloved governor,”Coupe” Deval Patrick is being considered to replace the confirmed bachelor.Also,a name that’s always been mention as a potential RAT nominee for the SCOTUS is a Harvard professor named Lawrence Tribe.Anyone curious about him should google “Commonwealth Day School” to learn how he and other fellow residents of one of the most enlightened,richest and most “progressive” streets in Massachusetts conspired to shut down a black school that had opened in their midst a few years back.
Great suggestion. And in addition, Chavez is a well-respected centrist moderate with bi-partisan support ;-)
If Steffie calls this guy a “strong centrist”, it means he’s probably to the left of Zero.
It is becoming more true every single day - elections DO have consequences.
If she really were a “strong centrist”, Steppy would be tearing her apart. As such, I’m sure she has no respect for our Constitution, just like her former pupil.
but reporters dont ask tough questions anymore i guess...or easy ones either...
Only if you’re a beauty queen.
Why is it that the normal people are said to be racists, while the elite always are?
“strong centrist” is an oxymoron.
