The AP is reporting that Senator John McCain plans to oppose the appointment of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court during his Senate confirmation vote this week. 
The Arizona senator calls Sotomayor a judicial activist who tried to walk back from that record during her confirmation hearings. He says President Barack Obama's nominee has used her position as a judge to try to change the law...

McCain says Sotomayor's life story is inspiring and compelling, but he says that's not enough to qualify her for a position on the high court.
