Sotomayor’s community connection

When President Barack Obama asked Sonia Sotomayor to be his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court back in the spring, he also asked her to promise him two things.

“The first was to remain the person I was, and the second was to stay connected to my community,” Sotomayor said in a C-SPAN interview, as recounted by USA Today‘s Joan Biskupic. “I said to him that those were two easy promises to make, because those two things I could not change.”

Biskupic’s piece on Sotomayor’s impact on the Latino community – and the community’s impact on the justice – can be found here.
