    • I only saw a portion of the news today and I have mixed feelings about the nominees for Supreme Court justice. I am in awe at the changes going on in our nation with an African American President but are we really ready for women rule?

        • Sandra Day O‘conner was a wonderful Supreme Court justice. I don’t know anything about this new justice other than she has been supported by both a democrat president (clinton) and a republican president (bush senior). It didn’t take long to get her in place, though. The rushing through of her appointment makes me a little nervous. After all, they are in the position for life or until they decide to leave.

        • I am just concerned that they seem gung-ho on getting a woman, preferably an ethnic woman. Really, shouldn’t we be looking for the best PERSON? And I am definitely not a “let only white men have the big jobs” person!

        • I do remember the President said something to the effect that Sotomayor is more qualified than the other one was when appointed some years ago. I guess we need more information so that we can have facts based opinions.

        • while I do not know much about the women whom Obama has nominated. I feel proud to see her nominated as a serious contender. While in many ways our Country has moved forward the fact that it is a topic of such debate, shows that their is still a need for the importance of the act. women and minorites men too all of us are capable of being the right candidate and if she is able to gian the support i hope that she performs well.

        • Personally, I’m ready to let women Rule. Sorry, but women should be the architects & men should be the builders. They’ve got more muscle, but we’ve got more brains. It’s about time we get to use them. I think the world would be a better place.

          Reverse sexism? perhaps. Ok, yes - guilty.

        • The question for discussion is, “Are we as a nation ready for more women rule?”

        • I find that (in my experience) women multi-task better, see the whole picture more clearly which helps when making decisions, and instinctually gravitate towards diplomatic and logical solutions.  

          Yes - men have their positives as well, and what I said are generalizations, but I’m all for women being in charge.... of everything. :)

        • Oh - while I stand behind what I said... I’d NEVER want positions (of any kind) filled due to gender or any other factor that has nothing to do with qualifications and experience.  

          From what I’ve heard of this candidate, she’s VERY qualified - possibly more so than any other justice ever appointed - and the fact that it’s a WOMAN is a bonus.  While I know some will think she was chosen based on gender or ethnicity - or a combo - I say that only made her stand out - bringing her resume and credentials into the limelight.

        • We agree that women are capable in more ways than one of filling political positions. I especially like the comment about multi-tasking, that trait is something we do everyday even in the poorest of countries, cities and states from the beginning of time.
