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.

Former Clinton Cabinet member Federico Pena, a Texas native who later became Denver mayor, and Frank Sanchez, who landed a top job at the Commerce Department, reached out to Latino groups and elected officials to seek candidates for administration positions.
