Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Hillary Clinton

Believe it or not, Justice Sonia Sotomayor and presidential candidate-in-waiting Hillary Clinton have a lot in common.

They both graduated from Yale Law School (Clinton in ’73; Sotomayor in ’79). They’ve both overcome great adversity: Sotomayor escaped the projects to become the Supreme Court’s first Hispanic justice, and Clinton escaped the embarrassment of her husband’s blue dress stains to become the 67th secretary of state. They both wrote memoirs, though based on reviews, it looks like critics prefer Sotomayor’s “beloved world” (affiliate link) over any of the “hard choices” (affiliate link) Clinton may have had to make.

Last, but not least, both Sotomayor and Clinton spend their free time at big-box retailers like Costco…

We wonder if Clinton was selling her book at bargain basement wholesale prices to attract Costco’s customary ilk — like Justice Sotomayor. Here’s the picture for our latest caption contest:
