Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor fractured her ankle Monday in an airport stumble in New York City. Sotomayor, President Obama's pick to replace David Souter on the Supreme Court, was on her way to Washington for an afternoon of meetings with senators.

MELISSA BLOCK, host:

President Obama's Supreme Court nominee is keeping up a busy schedule in advance of her confirmation hearings. And she is doing it despite getting injured today. Sonia Sotomayor fractured her right ankle when she tripped at LaGuardia Airport in New York, but she still flew to Washington. She showed up at the Capitol on crutches and wearing a cast to keep her meetings with senators.
