Empathy was so last week. This week, she’s got sympathy:

WASHINGTON – The White House says Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor has broken her ankle after an airport stumble in New York City.

Sotomayor fractured her right ankle Monday morning at New York’s LaGuardia Airport before boarding a shuttle to Washington for an afternoon of meetings with senators.

She’ll keep her six appointments on Capitol Hill Monday despite the injury, which has her walking with crutches, the White House said.

The judge has kept up a busy schedule in Washington as the White House presses for her quick confirmation. She even stopped at the White House before heading to the hospital for an x-ray.

UPDATE: This from commenter Paul Dirks:

I have one question and one question only.
Did she sue?
