Senate Votes 68 to 31 to Confirm Sonia Sotomayor to Supreme Court - washingtonpost.com: "The Senate, in a vote laden with history and partisanship, confirmed Sonia Sotomayoron Thursday as the 111th justice and the first Hispanic to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court."Here is what jumps right out at me.
- At 68-31 it was pretty much a party line vote.
- The focus is on her race/ethnicity rather than her record.
