    Vice President Joe Biden selected Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to conduct his inaugural swearing-in, the Presidential Inaugural Committee announced Friday, making her the first Hispanic asked to do the job.

    Sotomayor will be the fourth female judge to administer an oath of office.

    She will perform the duty at Biden's official swearing-in on Sunday and at the ceremonial swearing-in on Monday.....snip~

    The selection of Sotomayor comes after an election in which Latino voters helped propel President Obama to victory. More than 70 percent of Latino voters backed Barack Obama over GOP candidate Mitt Romney, and Hispanics made up 10 percent of the national electorate for the first time ever.

    Referencing the election results, Biden called Latinos "the center of this nation's future," during a speech to the non-profit Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Thursday night.

    Chief Justice John Roberts will administer the oath of office to President Obama. Both Obama and Biden will be officially sworn in during smaller, private ceremonies on Sunday, Jan. 20 and then participate in a ceremonial swearing-in on Monday, Jan. 21 in front of a large crowd outside the U.S. Capitol.....snip~

    I long for the day when "firsts" will not be news.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
