WOMEN/MINORITY REPRESENTATION: The talking heads are still suggesting on the cable news shows that the president should have nominated a woman to the Supreme Court. It makes me wonder why these people only look skin-deep. What difference does it make if the nominee is male, female, white, African-American, Latino, or of any other minority group? He's still a human being. Aren't we supposed to be judging people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin or their gender?

And no, I cannot buy into the argument that he cannot understand women's issues. For one, the Constitution does not break people down into men and women. The only issues it addresses are human issues. Nor is Judge Roberts (or any other qualified SCOTUS nominee) some Neanderthal who came out of a cave and does not know women.
