president obama nominates first native american woman

To federal bench

http://www.policymic.com/mobile/articles/65911/president-obama-just-nominated-the-very-first-native-american-woman-for-federal-judge

Diane J. Humetewa, a member of the Hopi tribe and former U.S. attorney in Arizona, has been nominated to serve on the U.S. District Court for the district of Arizona as a federal judge. If confirmed, she would be the first active member of a Native American reservation, and first Native American woman to serve as a federal judge. Not only would this bring more diversity to the federal bench, but Arizona’s prominent Native community will finally be represented in a state that is infamous forignoring Native issues.

2. 1st?!

Kudos to Obama, but Jesus, since 1789 there hasn't been a single native woman on the Fed. bench? Have there been any native men? Probably a few, I guess.

9. Is this one of the many appointments that was blocked

by the GOP but allowed under the new Senate rules for appointees?

If so, this needs to be broadcast far and wide.
