Best wishes

To Judge Sonia Sotomayor who is beginning her confirmation hearings today as Barack Obama's nominee to the vacant Supreme Court of the U.S. seat left by Judge Souter. She is an intelligent, fair-minded and rational woman who can judge cases on their individual facts, and has often done so, as witnessed in rulings for and against such hot-button issues as affirmative action, where and when appropriate. I respect greatly anyone who can come from poor background - be they male or female, black, white, Hispanicm or anything else - to get a great education and achieve what Ms. Sotomayor has achieved. A great choice by President Obama and I hope (am sure) the Senate will agree and confirm her nomination in due time.
