On November 27, 1991, President George H.W. Bush applied "that vision thing" to judiciary matters, and Sonia Sotomayor was thus nominated to a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
Thus began the federal career of a leftist judge who believes that the Constitution is unconstitutional because it is unfair to people of color.
A woman who believes that a "wise Latina" would able handle justice more effectively than a white judge--based solely on race and gender.
A woman who believes that the judiciary is authorized to make law, despite the Constitutional assignment of that prerogative to the Legislative branch.
A woman who has been overturned by the US Supreme Court in a number of decisions, including her participation in a case involving discrimination against white firefighters.
A woman who most likely would agree with President Obama who accused a white police officer of "acting stupidly" by arresting an esteemed black scholar and personal "friend."
Notwithstanding valid objections to the Sotomayor nomination, the United States Senate decided that affirmative action and racial pandering were more important that the Constitution and color blind jurists on the highest court in the land.
Thus, Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed as is now a member of the United States Supreme Court.
And history was made, Hispanically Speaking.
