Latinos filling more high-level government jobs By Richard S. Supreme Court has focused national attention on her Latino heritage and the history-making nature of her selection.
But the bright spotlight on Sotomayor has obscured a highly significant shift in the ways of Washington: President Obama has selected far more Hispanics for his administration than any previous president in American history.
Latinos comprise 11 percent of the new president's first nominees for senior administration positions requiring Senate confirmation, according to the White House.
That shatters the 5. Bush during the first 18 months of his presidency, according to Office of Management and Budget statistics.
Bush had broken the previous record held by his predecessor, Bill Clinton, who filled 4. In addition to 33 positions requiring Senate confirmation, Obama has chosen 26 Latinos for White House staff jobs -more than any of his predecessors.
Obama's Latino wave is a stark reminder of the increasing clout of the nation's fast-growing and largest minority group. But it also reflects a Hispanic power shift from Texas to California. Of the top Latinos in the Obama administration, 21 have connections to the Golden State, while 14 boast Texas ties - a reversal from Bush and Clinton days.
Civil rights advocates hail the rapid increase in Latino employment in the West Wing and beyond. The Obama administration is simply reflecting the emerging reality of America in the early 21st century.
It also reflects the complexity of a president who proudly calls himself an American "mutt" - a biracial president, the son of an immigrant, a person who has experienced racism and benefited from affirmative action.
