Here's another reason

For Republicans to hold their fire on Sotomayor. It isn't just that she (probably) won't be a major figure in the Court's internal politics. She might not be on the Court as long as Republicans fear:

Judge Sotomayor married before she graduated from college and divorced a few years later. Her diabetes, for which she takes insulin daily, has not proved to be a problem, but some have speculated as to whether her illness could or should be an issue in terms of her projected longevity on the court, because of the potential for complications.

UPDATE: The diabetes meme is questioned.
