Whatever one thinks of Obama, you cannot accuse him of appointing lightweights. This is a serious appointment, and one who is not necessarily a doctrinaire liberal. Or at least, if I recall correctly, someone who taught of U. of Chicago, where it would hard to be an inflexible liberal for terribly long.
