Here is the link from this thought-provoking story that I just read.
Sonia Sotomayor is a remarkable woman. We have all heard of how she overcame tremendous adversity to become the judge she is today. I am thrilled to think that someone with a compelling life story, such as hers, will have the opportunity to serve the American public. Even Senator Hatch of Utah is anxious to hear her story and listen to the confirmation hearings. He has, I should point out, never denied succession to a presidential appointee to the bench of the Supreme Court.
Ms. Sotomayor's unique life experiences will serve her well as she hears cases from the bench, just as she has heard them in her present capacity.
I am excited about the appointment - Ms. Sotomayor's qualification is unquestionable - that she is a woman and a Latina is icing on the cake.
