A Woman of Color on the Supreme Court?!

It's a possibility. David Souter, the Bush appointed "Conservative turned Liberal" is said to be leaving the court in June.


I was estatic, to say the least, when I cam across this article. In this day and age we should not limit ourselves to race and gender when evaluating people for this position. Nonetheless, there is currently only one woman on the Supreme Court and there is very little color on the supreme court. The disconnect between the court's ethnic and gender make up to that of America seems to have disabled their ability to comprehend minority and women's rights.

Hopefully the Obama administration will keep this in mind.
