I know there are a lot more important things to consider when picking a potential Supreme Court Justice, but the fact that Judge Sonia Sotomayor rides a bike is kind of cool.
Check out this snip from a story that went out on the AP wire yesterday (emphasis mine):
“Where humanizing was needed, Democrat Chuck Schumer, the senior senator from Sotomayor’s home state and by tradition her sponsor, was on the job.
“She’s a very human person,” Schumer told reporters after their meeting. They talked New York, he said. “She’s a bicycle rider, I’m a bicycle rider. We talked a little bit about our favorite routes.”
There was also a fair bit of substance discussed during the meetings…”
Wait, chatting about bike routes isn’t “substance?”. (kidding)
I can see it now, Judge Sotomayor and President Obama discussing the weighty issues of our time on a lunch break bike ride down the C & O Canal Trail. Can you imagine the security detail on that one?!
