Sonia Sotomayor: Obama's Supreme Pick

President Barack Obama has nominated Appellate Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the U.S. Supreme Court. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Sotomayor will become the first member of Latino heritage to serve on the nation's highest court.

From the AP (Obama picks Sotomayor for high court):
Judge Sonia Sotomayor is a self-described "Niuyorican" who grew up in a Bronx housing project after her parents moved to New York from Puerto Rico. She has dealt with diabetes since age 8 and lost her father at age 9, growing up under the care of her mother in humble surroundings. As a girl, inspired by the Perry Mason television show, she knew she wanted to be a judge.

A graduate of Princeton University and Yale Law School, a former prosecutor and private attorney, Sotomayor became a federal judge for the Southern District of New York in 1992.

As a judge, she has a bipartisan pedigree. She was first appointed by a Republican, President George H.W. Bush, then named an appeals judge by President Bill Clinton in 1997.

  2. Judge Sonia Sotomayor is one of the most supremely qualified candidates selected by any U.S. President for the Supreme Court in my lifetime. Her life experience, top tier education and academic credentials and professional experience at every level of the legal profession make her, at present, one of the best qualified Judges ever selected for the high court. That is a woman, Latina and comes from humble roots means that like our President, she is not so far removed or indifferent to the plight of the ordinary man. This woman MUST be comfirmed.

  3. Video : An incredible Latino Republican and Perfect Idiot despising Black Americans

    Videos of Rachel Maddow denouncing Republican Hypocrisy in attacking Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

    The Hypocrisy of Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh, saying that the Judge is "Racist" ( they are top Racists ).

    The Hypocrisy of Manuel Miranda, Republican Promoter, saying a lot of Imbecilities. He is a very dubious person with very dubious indelicate acts and actions in the past and has been called a "disgrace" by some Republicans.

    Manuel Miranda says about Latinos : "We are not like African Americans, We are like everybody else"

    The strategy of the party of NO is not working.
