The Supreme Court itself says that this woman is WRONG!
Judge Sotomayor has a TERRIBLE record as a Circuit Court judge, of being REVERSED by the U.S. Supreme Court. In fact, she has a 60% reversal rate as a Court of Appeals judge!
You read that right: 3 out of 5 of Judge Sotomayor's decisions as a Circuit Court Judge that have been appealed have been overturned by the United State Supreme Court!
If the U.S. Supreme Court says this Judge is wrong, HOW CAN THE U.S. SENATE SAY THAT SHE IS RIGHT???
The answer is, they should NOT. But it's up to US -- YOU AND ME -- to take that message to them!
Even pundits on the left are critical of Mr. Obama's pick of Judge Sotomayor. Jeffrey Rosen, writing in the liberal magazine, The New Republic, discussed his investigation of her background, writing, "I've been talking to a range of people who have worked with her, nearly all of them former law clerks for other judges on the Second Circuit or former federal prosecutors in New York.

Nearly all of them acknowledged that Sotomayor is a presumptive front-runner, but nearly none of them raved about her. They expressed questions about her temperament, her judicial craftsmanship, and most of all, her ability to provide an intellectual counterweight to the conservative justices, as well as a clear liberal alternative." Going further, Rosen writes:
