History in the Making: Judge Sonia Sotomayor begins Senate confirmation hearings today.

Monday, July 13, 2009

We've experienced two very significant racial firsts in this country in 2009: Barack Obama was elected as this country's first Black President and a beleaguered Michael Steele became the first African-American to earn the post of Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

We, the minorities, have a chance at a historic three-for-three today as the Hon. Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina appointed to the high court, begins her Senate confirmation hearings. Though Senate Dems have more than enough votes to confirm the Bronx, NY native, the Pubs will try their best to make the Judge sweat it out.

You might think this stuff is for nerds. I happen to think it's facinating. Either way it's history in the making, so do yourself a favor and tune in for a bit. Besides, it this is anything like Sam Alito's confirmation in 2006, then it'll be a hoot.
