Groundbreaking Moment: Obama Nominates Sotomayor for Supreme Court

Just a few hours ago, President Obama nominated federal appeals court judge Sonia Sotomayor as the first Hispanic to serve on the Supreme Court.


If confirmed, Sotomayor, 54, would be the first Supreme Court justice of Hispanic (Puerto Rican) descent and only the third woman ever to sit on the panel. She grew up in a Bronx housing project, went on to Princeton University and Yale Law School.

I watched this morning and felt as proud and teary-eyed as day Obama was sworn in. This is a major moment for Latinas in this country!
