Confirmed!

Posted by AB on August 6, 2009

No surprise, but very gratifying for her supporters. Judge Sonia Sotomayor has been confirmed by a Senate vote of 68-31. She will be only the third woman and first Hispanic to sit upon this nation’s highest court. Judge Sotomayor will be sworn-in as Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Saturday.

Nine Republicans voted “Yea,” while the rest of the Republican members of the US Senate voted “Nay.” There will, no doubt, be a political fallout for those who voted “Nay,” and some Pepublicans who voted “Yea.” This is not the time for that, however. We should all appreciate this historic moment in our nation’s history.

This confirmation is great for the United States of America, and not just because of her gender or race, but because she is immensely prepared to become a great Supreme Court Justice. I, for one, am very proud.
