    Sotomayor sworn in

    Sotomayor sworn in as U.S. Supreme Court justice

    Sotomayor, 55, won a Senate confirmation vote on Thursday amid intense conservative opposition. The tally was 68-31 in her favour, with unanimous Democratic support. Most Republican senators voted against her, but nine joined their Democratic colleagues.
    I think there was too much hubbub about her ethnicity... but aside from that, I wish her well in her new position.

    No one cared about her ethnicity, not nearly enough as she cared about others ethnicity......

    You wish her well, what's the point? She's unqualified, and a disgrace.

    Very much so! But we all knew that she would be ramrodded through.

    On the plus side, at least the ideological makeup of the court will remain unchanged.

    At the end of the day, it's just fun to watch the right wing cry.

    Well done Ms. Sotomayor, good luck in your new job.

    I love judging people off past comments. It makes me feel warm inside. Hell, John McCain is about to bomb Iran as we speak and Sotomayor is sketching plans to create a social and ethnic apartheid. ALLAH!

    Good luck to her. I prefer to judge them based off their performance.

    Yeah, because the far-right has done so much to make the GOP more relevant.


    The negativity surrounding her nomination and confirmation was 50% partisan and 50% racist, IMO.

    She's exceptionally qualified and anyone who doesn't know that she's a moderate, slightly left of center, has bought into the far-right partisan/racist talking points and avoided doing any objective research or reading up on her.

    Lazy partisanship. Way to go!

    BTW-- finally an actual breaking news story in the 'Breaking News' forum. It's an historic day for the court.
