For eight years of Clinton, then eight years of Bush, Carlos Ortiz has waited. With the election of Obama, Ortiz hopes — trusts — he will have to wait no more to see his dream realized: the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice.

“What more unifying appointment could there be than a Hispanic justice?” asks Ortiz, who began his campaign in 1987 as a board member, then as president, of the Hispanic National Bar Association and later as chair of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund. “It’s not just the right thing to do, but we deserve it. I can’t imagine that the next appointment will go to someone other than a Hispanic.” (more…)

When its all said and done, government is about maintaining/establishing a head count.
