President Barack Obama Nominates Sonia Sotomayor - Good Decision!

No matter what others may say, I say to President Barack Obama, Good JOB!

UPDATE: I will say, does make some interesting points when she writes, "Yes, Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s career reflects the kind of arc that should inspire us all. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep pushing for another black Supreme Court justice."

Yes, it is a good choice and for me it is somewhat radical. Who would think that a Woman from the Bronx would be the next Supreme Court Nominee?

There are concerns by some that Sonia Sotomayor if confirmed could be a female Clarence Thomas.

Hmm... There are a number of great bloggers following this story, including the good folks at Jack & Jill Politics, Booker Rising, along with Pamela on Politics over at BET.com

Mr. President, I love the fact that you chose a
Supreme Court nominee who rose from humble roots. Yes, I'm loving that President Barack Obama has chosen New York jurist Sonia Sotomayor to succeed Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court. This is a great day for America, particularly for our Latino brothers and sisters. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, she would be the nation's first Hispanic justice. Obama said he was looking for a jurist who had "a common touch and a sense of compassion." It's interesting to note the 54-year-old Sotomayor, was named to a federal judgeship by a Republican, former President George Herbert Walker Bush in 1992. My sense is, the republicans will have a hard time not confirming a former Bush nominee. Let's see what happens though, the Republicans are not the smartest group of people these days. Even though some media reports that are saying, Republicans are withholding criticism of Sotomayor, there are still some Republicans who have already started trying to create red flags.
