    Were she not a female and Hispanic, she never would have even made the short list. Let’s be honest. I feel sorry for the more qualified individuals out there who were passed over simply because they weren’t the “correct” gender and/or race.

    A person will be well brilliant in the life by their personal experience.

    M.J., what qualifications are Sotomayor lacking? Who are these people that are more qualified than Sotomayor?

    Yes, Sotomayor has race and gender working in her favor. But honestly, can you name one area where she is legitimately lacking in qualification for nomination to the Supreme Court? Because unless you can find one, I don’t understand complaining about her race or gender and some unfair advantage she has, because at one point, those things were considered unfair disadvantages in this area. You complaining about her gender and race just sounds like you just want another white male on the Court. Otherwise, why bring it up?
