Obama to pick Sotomayor for Supreme Court

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.

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"
