What I noticed most about, "Obama Nominee Sonia Sotomayor Poised to Become First Hispanic Supreme Court Justice" (http://www.democracynow.org/2009/5/27/obama_nominee_sonia_sotomayor_would_become#) was how awesome it was that not only is there going to be another female Supreme Court Justice, but she's a Latina too!
When Juan Gonzalez said she was going to become the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice, I was thinking, "Yes! We're moving up in the world!" ^_^ because this is a really big deal.
Another part that caught my attention was that she was raised in the Bronx. That made me think, If she can do it, I should be able to do something with my life too.
I agree with Obama's decision on this because its about time America was stopped being run the white man and only the white man.
President Obama has nominated federal appeals court judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, putting her in line to become the country’s first Hispanic justice.
The fifty-four-year-old Sotomayor is the daughter of Puerto Rican parents who was raised in a public housing project in the Bronx. A graduate of Princeton and Yale, she served as a prosecutor, corporate litigator and federal district judge before joining the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in New York in 1998. If confirmed to the Supreme Court, she would become the nation’s 111th justice and the third woman to hold a seat on the court.
