Judge Sotomayor will be Justice




Sonia Sotomayor (born June 25, 1954) is a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. On May 26, 2009, Obama nominated Judge Sotomayor for appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court to replace retiring Justice David Souter.








Justice Sonia Sotomayor is Obama choice for Supreme Court. I cannot agree more with his choice of this woman but lets look at the bigger picture...
The voting block of women in this country is a little over 52%, and populace wise a little over 51%. Nine members of the Supreme Court all men but one. Obama had no choice but to elect a woman, the many women who either supported him or have gotten involved after the media feeding frenzy of bashing women including the Obama campaign...
Obama has come under allot of pressure because of campaign promises he failed to deliver on or flat out decided were now not worthy, DADT, to name one, making college education more affordable then cutting funding to black colleges, sadly I heard people say he knows he will be one term President, so he will do exactly what he wants, I believe his ego will drive him further...
Senator Barbara Boxer California and Senator Olympia Snow Maine stressed and wrote to Obama to pick a women for the Supreme Court;
Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Senator Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) wrote a letter to Obama urging him to appoint a woman and reminding him that: Women make up 51% of our nation's population. Yet only 17% of the seats in Congress are held by women. Only 3% of corporate CEOs are women. And just one out of nine Supreme Court justices is a woman. When 96 percent of all Supreme Court Justices throughout our history have been men, clearly it is evident that we need another woman on the Court. When asked recently how it felt to be the only woman on the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg simply replied, "Lonely."
Let's see what happens next, and he is going to have to appoint another Justice shortly down the road we can only hope it will be another women. Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg is said to be the next Justice to retire...
