    I think there was too much hubbub about her ethnicity... but aside from that, I wish her well in her new position.

    Re: Sotomayor sworn in

    I find a very weird irony in that conservatives here call her a flaming liberal, when some on the left were upset that an actual liberal was not named. She did have the most experience of any Supreme Court Justice, and she was if anything too moderate in her 3000+ rulings. So what if she did not come walking in with an Annie Oakley six shooter at her hip. Good lord, people need to get a grip on reality. Because someone does not fit the cookie cutter role of what they want does not mean the person is unqualified.

    Despite your objections to her jurisprudence (not that I think you actually know what you don't like about it), it's foolish to say she's unqualified.

    Except for South Carolina's popular Senator most of the Republicans who voted for Soto M are those who are retiring. One glaring example is Martinez of Florida. So the opposition to Soto M was pretty much partisan.

    The whole Marxist/Socialist talking point is really getting old. You need to ask Rush for a new one.

    Summa cum laude from Princeton and law review editor at Yale Law school and a great rating from the ABA. She's as qualified as one can be. Now, I know that about 50% of her rulings will bother me and her comment regarding a 'wise Latina' was unspeakably stupid, but she is quite qualified.

    As for the confirmation, ho hum. This was all much ado about nothing, she's a liberal Justice replacing a liberal justice and was always going to be confirmed.

    I applaud Sotomayor's record and experience as well as her ability to be fair in court. Well done! Well done! She is a great addition to the court.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
