Sonia Maria Sotomayor– She’s neither Clarence Thomas nor Thurgood Marshall nor John Roberts nor Sandra Day O’Connor… Sotomayor is her own person. Her record reflects a thoughtful and complex woman who has carved out her own path. Your objections to her nomination reveal a short-sightedness and lack of sensitivity towards Latinos and women of her background who must of necessity find their own way.
Further, you fail to observe the historical significance and political importance of her nomination. Sotomayor will be the first Latino justice on the bench. Latinos are the largest minority group in the nation and their electoral strength must be reckoned with.
