Obama's View on Judges

Throughout the campaign Obama expressed his view that judges should place their hand on the scales of justice to achieve some whimsical, and more importantly undefinable, idea of "fairness"and "social justice."  His views echo typical attacks on conservative judges for not caring for the little guy and "feeling their pain."  I recently ran across a quote in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged that puts this theory in a sobering light.
"Whenever anyone accuses some person of being 'unfeeling,' he means that that person is just."
