Diversity on the Bench

Philadelphia Inquirer: "So far, nearly half of Obama's 73 appointments to the federal bench have been women, 25 percent have been African American, 11 percent Asian American, and 10 percent Hispanic. About 30 percent of Obama's nominees were white males. By contrast, two-thirds of George W. Bush's nominees were white males."

"Obama's rate of appointing women and people of color is higher than those of any of his predecessors during the first year of their terms."
