President Obama Makes Historic SCOTUS Nomination

Judge Sonia Sotomayor represents the changing face of America.

Her life story is compelling and mirrors the President's in many ways: She grew up in the projects, raised by a widowed mom who had to work two jobs to support her. She graduated with honors from Princeton and Yale Law School, was a DA, a corporate attorney, and judge. She has more than the requisite experience and qualifications to serve on the nation's highest court.

She has TWICE passed Senate confirmation, appointed first as a district judge by "Poppy" Bush and then as an appelate court judge by President Clinton.

A word to the (un)wise Repugnants: Try blocking her confirmation based on your RWWM views of her "judicial philosophy" at your own very great peril, lest you become a permanent regional minority party. Be very, very careful with your oppositional schemes. Latinos do not forgive or forget so easily.
