But, Olympia, is there an even better qualified "Not-Woman"?

Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, a moderate Republican, congratulated Obama for "nominating a well qualified woman."

WSJ: "Senate GOP Reaction Guarded To Sotomayor High Court Pick". We like Olympia Snowe a lot--and remember her as a 31-year-old freshman Representative in the Longworth Building: smart, earnest and attractive, and so young-looking she often was mistaken for staff. She's come far. WAC? likes her ideas. We'd like her ideas if she were a Man. Or a Gazelle. Or a Chipmunk. But, assuming she is trying to be supportive, and not just hedging her bets for the press, surely she can do better than the above. Update: More Sotomayor at Legal Blog Watch. She's everywhere.
