Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle hosted a reception for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor Wednesday morning at the White House.

"I am struck again today by the wonder of my own life and the life we in America are so privileged to lead," Sotomayor said. "I am deeply humbled by the sacred responsibility of upholding our laws and safeguarding the rights and freedoms set forth in our Constitution. I ask not just my family and friends, but I ask all Americans to wish me divine guidance and wisdom in administering my new office."
Sotomayor was sworn in over the weekend, replacing retiring Justice David Souter. She is the the first Hispanic justice and only the third woman in the court's 220-year history.
