fellow alumnus nominated for Supreme Court!

President Obama's nominee to replace Justice Souter on the Supreme Court is Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who is a graduate of Cardinal Spellman High School. This is the same school that girasole, drewshi, jafinnola, themadadmin, and I all attended.

This also continues the West Wing-ification of the presidency, as there are a mess of similarities between Judge Sotomayor and the fictional Judge Roberto Mendoza, played by Edward James Olmos, President Bartlet's nominee for the Court.

Judge Sotomayor was the keynote speaker at Career Day at Spellman in 2006 -- the first year I went (thanks to drewshi and jafinnola for the reminder) -- and I'm particularly proud to share a home borough and alma mater with her. *grin*
