Congratulations to her ... a proud day for all Latin-Americans in the country. A group that is growing and ever eager to be a part of the national process. IMO she will be very close to the middle on the court. She may be more the swing vote than the left would like. I think she will do an excellant job. Of course ... I'm on record here of saying I'm glad we also have another woman on the court ... hopefully we end up with one more. On another note ... the stupidity of some republicans of voting no. Especially John McCain of all people whose district is growing in Hispanic population. The GOP took a step backwards today ... showing that bi partisanship is not a part of their agenda ... dumb - dumb - dumb.
