What the????

OK, I started reading this article, and it looks like the regular Supreme Court Justice David Souter is retiring, and Obama wants to appoint a new Supreme Court Judge. Normally I would be like OK, it's his own business if he wants to appoint a new judge for the US Supreme Court. What stood out the most was this statement:

Souter's retirement after almost two decades of unpredictable decisions gives Obama an early chance to place his stamp on the nine-member high court, possibly by naming a minority — a second black or the court's first Hispanic — or a second woman, as well as to affirm if not strengthen its support for abortion rights.

OK, a couple of things fly out at you immediately. First let me say I admire Obama's stand on wanting to be different, and break the monotony by hiring a black or Hispanic judge to take his place. But what the Hell has race got to do with being a good judge??? Don't get me wrong! I'm a hispanic myself and I root for them all the way. If this is the first time one would be appointed to the position of Supreme Court judge, I'm all for it! But why the heck is Obama making such a big howdy-doo about the nationality of his choice for the next SC judge?? And why is this article going along with it??

Another thing that flies out is the fact that Obama thinks that just because this is a woman that she will affirm support for abortion rights. What's up with that??? Maybe I read it wrong, and if I did, someone please correct me, but that's what I got out of that last sentence. How many women are actually going to support abortions? I'm a woman and I don't even want any kids, but I would never get an abortion. Not unless my life was in danger from the pregnancy. Otherwise, I'd have the kid and put it up for adoption if it happened to me and I don't want kids. Let someone who cannot have kids enjoy the one I brought into the World. Maybe they could give the child a better life than I could.

Anyway, here is the article:
