Romney appoints 3 minority women

The Boston Globe, a.k.a The New Time's step-child, wrote that, "Governor Mitt Romney yesterday nominated four candidates, including three minority women, to Massachusetts courts.

Romney has faced criticism that he has not nominated enough women or minorities to be judges. In 2005, the Women's Bar Association of Massachusetts chastised the Republican governor. During his first two years, 17 of Romney's 19 nominations were men and only two were minorities."

The question now becomes if the judges are conservative? Would a President Romney appoint a David Souter? If Romney does not list Scalia, Thomas, Roberts or Alito has his favorite Supreme Court justices, Romney could be in trouble.
