    “Since I have difficulty defining merit and what merit alone means, and in any context, whether it’s judicial or otherwise, I accept that different experiences in and of itself, bring merit to the system
    I find this statement ABSURD!

    I think it brings to the system more of a sense of fairness when these litigants see people like myself on the bench.
    So then does any defendant have a right to a judge of their race?

As it is, even Charlie Savage of the NYT offering "Videos Shed New Light on Sotomayor’s Positions" (link) probably won't have much of an impact unless regular citizens - i.e., you - send that article to everyone you know and encourage them to do the same. The way to block her is to turn public opinion against her; the GOP won't do that so we need to. One of the ways would be to obtain the videos and create a highlight reel that can be uploaded to Youtube.

    The article describes how some of her decisions have fallen on the conservative side - including some of her positions on using international law. However, the rest is rather unfavorable:
