President Barack Obama tapped federal appeals Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court on Tuesday, officials said, making her the first Hispanic in history picked to wear the robes of a justice.

If confirmed by the Senate, Sotomayor, 54, would succeed retiring Justice David Souter. Two officials described Obama's decision on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement had been made.

Administration officials say Sotomayor would bring more judicial experience to the Supreme Court than any justice confirmed in the past 70 years.

Very early indications are that she could be slightly less left leaning as Souter although still on the left side.

Considering the current political situation, I'll take it.

Souter was a trojan horse put in by Bush I...expect this one to show her leftist signs early.

She believes in legislating from the bench, even made mention of the power of the Court of Appeals in making policy.

National Review says she screws up a lot and disregards law in her opinions. Has been called down by Clinton appointees.

Looks like the president saw "latino" and "woman" and said "I'll take her"

It doesn't matter as dems will pass anyone that Obama trots out.

It's only fair. That's how HE got elected.

National Review hates her? Cool!

I have grown to love that term "legislating from the bench". Translated into English, I believe it means "THEY WANT TO TAKE MY GUNS AND BABIES!!!" and that makes me laugh.

I have not been keeping track - here it is, almost June...are all the guns banned yet? Have the forced abortions started? If not that Obama must be a total slacker!

At a 2001 UC Berkeley symposium marking the 40th anniversary of the first Latino names to the federal district court, Sotomayor said that the gender and ethnicity of judges do and should affect their judicial decision-making, Sotomayor said that the gender and ethnicity of judges do and SHOULD affect their judicial decision-making. "Our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging," she said. "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."


She's AWESOME man! Let's break out the pom-poms for another amazing Obama move. Rah rah! It's not even June yet and we've got our very own SC justice in the mold of the 1 nutball that opposed today's Prop-8 ruling. Love to read that dissenting opinion, I'm sure it's chock-full of amazing constitutional law citations. Way to go Obama...you're just so freaking cool.
