Three Cheers for Sotomayor!

She looks set to be the next Supreme Court Justice.

Here are two commentaries about the esteemed nominee that I feel are worthy of sharing.

The first compares Sotomayor's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee with that of Anita Hill, testifying in the Clarence Thomas hearings almost two decades ago. It is Jill Abramson's op-ed contribution, "Women on the Verge of Law."

The second is about the irony of identity politics in the confirmation hearings this past week.
