Maggie Rodriguez Brings a Latina Voice to CBS Morning News

Maggie Rodriguez’s star continues to rise on the CBS “Early Show”, reports the Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz.

Kurtz describes Rodriguez as small but mighty; feisty but fair.

The daughter of Cuban refugees and mother of a 4-year-old daughter, Maimi-raised Rodriguez says she is “proud” of Sonia Sotomayor but will report both strengths and weaknesses on her Supreme Court nomination.

“My responsibility as a Latina on the national stage is to represent my community well, but also to bring it to the attention of news executives if there’s a story that affects my community,” Rodriguez says.
