Kagan Confirmed


Another reason to repeal the 17th Amendment is to get politics out of the judiciary. Not only are Senators beholden to the party system, but judges are as well, due to the confirmation process. Politicians both oppose and support candidates based on party affiliation instead of qualifications. This is a disgraceful process.

Only one senator got it right, Brown from Massachusetts, who said she lacked judicial experience. While Sessions is correct that she is a leftist, the more important issue is lack of experience. Coupling this with your point about the party politics, it's truly time to break the supposed two party system.
