(Newser) – Michelle Obama threw herself into the Sotomayor debate today in a commencement address she gave to a DC charter school, Politico reports. She likened Sotomayor’s experience to hers and her husband’s, recalling people “sowing seeds of doubt” about them. “Judge Sotomayor is more than ready,” she said. “I was more than ready, and Barack Obama is certainly more than ready.”
