I'm not much more than a casual observer of the Supreme Court (I turn to my friends who work in the law to keep me well-informed), but I like what nominee Neil Gorsuch had to say in one opinion:
"...for it is (or should be) emphatically our job to apply, not rewrite, the law enacted by the people's representatives. Indeed, a judge who likes every result he reaches is very likely a bad judge, reaching for results he prefers rather than those the law compels."
That's a good perspective, and it reveals something important about what he thinks judges should be: Impartial arbiters. That's a good thing.
