Soniasmallerpg-vertical From the story: "President Obama will nominate federal appeals court judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court this morning.

Sotomayor, 54, would be the first Hispanic and third woman in history to serve on the nation's highest court. There is currently only one woman on the high court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg."

The Republicans will have a field day with Sotomayor, but she will get confirmed.
