Former Prosecutor To Be Nominated To SCOTUS

The SCOTUS Blog has an interesting analysis on the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to fill Justice Souter's upcoming vacancy on the Supreme Court.
Equally significant for not only Hispanics but all Americans, Sotomayor has an extraordinarily compelling personal narrative. She grew up in a housing project, losing her father as an adolescent, raised (with her brother) by her mother, who worked as a nurse. She got herself to Princeton, graduating as one of the top two people in her class, then went to Yale Law. Almost all of her career has been in public service–as a prosecutor, trial judge, and now appellate judge. She has almost no money to her name. Source: SCOTUS Blog

This will be interesting to watch.
