The president finally announced his pick to replace retiring Justice Souter for Supreme Court of the United States. I have already noticed some headlines labeling Sonia Sotomayor as being the first Hispanic Supreme Court nominee. I am sure that will be heavily propagated over the next few weeks.
There is already a lot of information being generated about the potential SCOTUS member. Here are some links that you can follow to read up on her.

Here is a list of stuff I have found on Sonia Sotomayor this morning.
Obama picks Sotomayor for SCOTUS slot

Sotomayor has been on the public short list the entire time, and the GOP has trained its guns elsewhere. They’ve been warning more about Elaine Kagan and Diane Wood, barely giving Sotomayor any notice at all. Republicans have also focused on the executive-branch appointments of Dawn Johnsen and Harold Koh, two radical activists, during this period. That public campaign may have made Sotomayor look less radical and activist in comparison, which makes a big public push less likely to succeed.
