Reaction to Sotomayor: 'She Won't Be as Pro-Business'
CNBC asked the experts what they think of President Barack Obama's nomination of New York Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. Here are some of their responses.
'She Won't Be As Pro-Business'
"Here's a woman who really understands sophisticated corporate business issues. She's going to be good for business and good for America."
— Keith Boykin, "The Daily Voice"
"You could not get a more pro-business justice than David Souter, that goes without saying ... So she won't be as pro-business, and I think she is an activist judge, and I think on issues like affirmative action she's going to be at least an annoyance for business."
— Greg Valliere, Soleil Securities
Supporting Obama's Choice
"We certainly don't want nine people on the Supreme Court with ice water running through their veins. We want them to understand rule of law and the real world, and she does understand both, her record shows both, so that makes her a great combination."
— Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY
Sotomayor Accepts Nomination
"I hope that as the Senate and American people learn more about me, they will see that I am an ordinary person who has been blessed with extraordinary opportunities and experiences. Today is one of those experiences."
— Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor
Obama's Official Nomination
"Walking in the door she would bring more experience on the bench, and more varied experience on the bench, than anyone currently serving on the United States Supreme Court had when they were appointed."
— President Barack Obama
