    To "the Obama" she is to the center.
    That's debatable.

    To me, could have been better, could have been worse.

    She is one of the consequences of losing the election. Let's just pray one of the Conservative Judges doesn't have to leave the bench in the next 4 years.
    That would be a dissaster.

    Undecided just yet in this one. I think the pick could have been much worse. What I will say is I think BHO is just as concerned with leaving historical marks as he is with anything else. I am still not really sure what this woman’s childhood or her mother has to do with much of anything. Would she be more or less qualified if she grew up in a rich affluent neighborhood? So far most of what I have read or seen of tv about her is her childhood and upbringing and I could not give a fat rats azz about it. Give me substance not fluff please.

    Justice is suppose to be Blind. Shouldn't matter your skin color, how much money you have, your gender, etc...Supremme Court makes rulings per the existing Laws (Constitution).

    Sonia Sotomayer made a statement regarding her gender, race and position in life that she believes makes her judgement better than someone of a different gender, race and position.

    As far as I'm concerned she is racist and opinionated and not suited for the Supreme Court.

    Sotomayor reversed 60% by high court
    By Stephen Dinan (Contact) | Wednesday, May 27, 2009

    With Judge Sonia Sotomayor already facing questions over her 60 percent reversal rate, the Supreme Court could dump another problem into her lap next month if, as many legal analysts predict, the court overturns one of her rulings upholding a race-based employment decision.

    Three of the five majority opinions written by Judge Sotomayor for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals and reviewed by the Supreme Court were reversed, providing a potent line of attack raised by opponents Tuesday after President Obama announced he will nominate the 54-year-old Hispanic woman to the high court.

    Three reversals in 380 opinions does not constitute 60%. Can you link to something more substantial than a sentence in an article in The Washington Times?

    Yeah, heaven forbid you actually read the article to determine where they derived the 60% figure.

    You are wrong!!! The Supreme Court overturned 60% of her cases that it heard.

    You can't show me stats that disagree with the Supreme Court overturnning 60% of her cases that it heard.

    60% is 60%.
