Confirmation hearing of Sonia Sotomayor
Now that Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation hearings are underway, I think it's appropriate to make a thread dedicated only to that, rather than continuing to use the Affirmative Action thread.
I usually agree with President Obama. However, I'm hesitant to support Sonia Sotomayor. She consistently comes out in favor of affirmative action, even when it is a case of "reverse racism." Statements and speeches she's made in the past make me very worried. I feel like President Obama could have picked someone much better.
What do you think? Should she be confirmed?
