Her repeated use of the phrases “wise Latina woman” and “wise woman” would appear to undermine the Obama administration’s assertions that the statement was simply a poor choice of words. After details of the 1994 speech circulated before the questionnaire’s release, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, emerged from his private meeting with Sotomayor and expressed new concerns about the nominee’s “identity politics.”
Judge Sotomayor will have alot of explaining to do now with regards to racial and sexual preferences. Her speeches, writings, cases and life will be gone through with a fine-toothed comb.
During her confirmation hearings she will have to clearly articulate/prove that she is unbiased and will apply justice for all Americans – not just “Wise” “Latina” or “Women” ones.
Remember that some have maintained that it is Sotomayor’s supporters that may indeed “SPIN” her out of a job on the United States Supreme Court.
