  •  This confirmation of lifetime appointments (0+ / 0-)

    Is a place that the original Constitution should have insisted on a 2/3rd majority of the Senate as it does for treatise and some other things.  Obama would do well to call on the Congress to place a Constitutional amendment before the states concerning this need for 67 votes in the Senate for such confirmations.  The objective is to have moderate judges as opposed to left and right judges.  That is about as "bipartisan" or "nonpartisan" as one can be.  And it leaves it upt to the people and/or the states to make it happen.

    Lets see the Republicans fight this one!!!
