Default Re: The Barbaric Yawp (Dayo Olopade & John McWhorter)

Totally agree with Dayo on the explanation for the "wise latina" context. It's probably what Sotomayor meant, it's part of why Obama saw her as a good choice (i.e. empathy) and it also happens to be true (in my opinion). No need for qualifications...more experience IS absolutely better.
