Sonia Sotomayor: High Court Bound!

History was made yesterday as Sonia Sotomayor officially joined the highest high court as a Supreme Court Justice.

The day's seating was ceremonial, but happened only one day before she joins the court on this season's next round of cases, starting today as Sotomayor and the oter justices ponder a campaign finance law case.

Sonia Sotomayor, the first latino on the high court and only the third woman, faced all sorts of controversy on her way to this seat, but I expect it will be smooth sailing from here on in, and if anything she may only be slightly disappointing to progressives who were hoping she'd be more the left than she actuallyis. The paranoid fears of Sonia Sotomayor as a racidal on the high court should be forgotten soon enough as her skill and level headedness becomes apparent. Here's to a long and righteous reign on the high court for Sonia Sotomayor!

Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Tuesday took her seat at the Supreme Court in front of a packed courtroom that included President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Sotomayor, 55, last month became the first Hispanic and third woman to be a justice.
