Interesting post. I was thinking of 12 & done yrs but what the heck.<quoted text>
The judiciary at the federal level should not be subject to electoral politics. It's bad enough at the state level where people are elected because they have Irish names.
I would limit federal judges to no more than 15 years at one level, and possibly allow them to be nominated by state governors instead of the President, with the exception of the Supreme Court.
But the idea of governors nominating fed judges bears thought. Especially with the 9 districts. I can see that working out with the right process.
The problem is that it would take a constitutional amendment & I'm somewhat pessimistic about that happening.
But still an idea worth thought.
