President Obama Selects Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court

Today is a historic moment for America and for a great day for the Curvy Girl Nation....

President Barack Obama named federal Court of Appeals Judge and Curvaceous South Bronx Latina Sonia Sotomayor to the supreme on fam:

Maria Colvin couldn't believe what she'd just heard on her TV set at the Bronxdale Houses on Watson Ave. - the same South Bronx public housing project where Sonia Sotomayor grew up.

Several miles away in his downtown Manhattan office, civil rights lawyer Cesar Perales was in tears.

All across the nation, Latinos were ecstatic after learning that President Obama had named federal Court of Appeals Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. Senate approval would make her the first Hispanic to serve on the high court.

More importantly, Obama made clear that Sotomayor has more experience as a federal district and appellate court judge than any current member of the high court had when appointed.
