Our judicial system is more diverse than ever before.

Good Vagina News!

As of today, Obama has put 72 female judges on the federal bench – the most ever appointed by a president in one term. (That’s the same number W appointed in 8 years. Clinton appointed 111 female judges in total, but only 61 in his first term.)

29 of those women are racial minorities (22 for W), three are openly gay (0 for W.) Obama has also doubled the number of Asian-Americans on the federal bench.

70% of Obama’s federal judicial appointments have been women or minorities, making him the first President in history not to appoint a majority of white men.

That’s change a vagina can believe in.
