Awesome - Political News for the Day

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Obama has chosen federal Judge Sonia Sotomayor as his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.


Judge Sonia Sotomayor receives an honorary degree from New York's Pace University in 2003.

Sotomayor would be the first Hispanic and third female U.S. Supreme Court justice if confirmed.



****I am really excited about having a Supreme Court and eventually a government full of the faces that represent us and not all older white men. Not that there's anything wrong with being an older white man, my dad was one--but our country is a much greater mix of people and I believe our government should represent that in its diversity.

Hi there. Found you through Sandra(Chicks Dig Poetry) Love your "Confession Tuesdays".
Will scroll through your blog to learn more about you. Suggestions for a fun-read novel: Collin Kelley(Blog: Modern Confessional). is releasing "Conquering Venus" soon. I am reading the first couple of chapters. It's quite good. Quick synopsis: 1995, Paris, older male teacher-volunteer, and a legal-age(18) coming-of-age young man find something more than love in the City of Lights, set against a backdrop of terrorism.Also, lovely Kate Evans has a follow-up to her first novel("For The May Queen"), coming out soon, too.It's called "Complementary Colors" and deals with a married woman falling for a lesbian.
Sorry to prattle on. Again, I enjoyed this entry.
