Quick Hit: It's Sotomayor

The Times is reporting that President Obama has selected Judge Sonia Sotomayor as his nominee for the Supreme Court seat Justice David Souter will be vacating when he retires at the end of this term.  From what I’ve read this seems like an excellent choice, though I was also excited about the prospect of a couple of his other short-listers, Dean Elena Kagan or Judge Diane Wood, being picked.  I hope that I’m right in believing her record shows her to be more likely to side with the powerless than the powerful; it’s also very exciting to have the first Latino on the court.
