President Obama has nominated Judge Sonya Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, a surprising – and inspirational - selection. If confirmed by Congress, Sotomayor would be the second woman on the Supreme Court and the third woman ever picked for the job. She would also be the first Latina in the position. Since the announcement, media pundits and politicos have discussed Sotomayor’s background and what role it will play in her decision making. Her appointment to the Supreme Court would be a breath of fresh air to America’s judicial system; the country needs a Justice who understands exactly how the average American lives.
