I took some time to watch parts of the confirmation hearing over the last several days and I must say i am not at all impressed with sotomayor. The one thing i heard was that education transformed her life. she was able to take advantage of extraordinary opportunities to attend Princeton and Yale etc etc But as i listened to her speak, I was disappointed. Now i know everyone makes mistakes but isn't language the medium of law? Should not our so called best choice for the highest court in the land have a command of the language of the land that exceeds the mean? Now she was born in this country so there should be no excuse for an erudite judge to make mistakes such as (and i am paraphrasing here) "when one is in eminent danger"... did she mean imminent? or "...vagrancies in the fire department..." you mean vacancies do you not? These may be minor things but in the world of jurisprudence minor mistakes in language can have significant ramifications.
