Instead of doing these good works, we learn that the CBC leadership is "launching a campaign to persuade President Obama to appoint one of their members," Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA), to replace Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court.
The CBC and Rep. Bobby Scott are tone-deaf. They should be working with the Congressional Hispanic Council to support the idea of a woman or a Hispanic candidate as the next Supreme Court justice. This isn't the right time to advocate for a 2nd Black justice. We've never had a Hispanic judge in over 200 years ... and we've only had two women justices on the court. Obama needs to deal with either or both of those issues with this selection.
Just my thought ... what say u?
