Today on the Morning Media Menu podcast, ABC News‘ senior political reporter Rick Klein discussed President Obama‘s Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor and some of the issues she is going to raise during her confirmation, in the Senate and in the press.

“One democrat said to me, ‘It’s almost like Obama chose himself for the Supreme Court,’” Klein said, pointing out that both Obama and Sotomayor are “moderate, middle of the road, non-controversial, not an ideologue in either direction” and have “a personal story that directs the narrative and the discussion about who they are.”

Klein, author of “The Note” blog and host of the ABC News Now show “Top Line,” also talked about the New York Times‘ new social media editor Jennifer Preston (who we spoke to yesterday) and the success of a personalized magazine.
