The Supreme Court does not need a judge, or a lawyer, it needs a person who has other than law life experiences
The Supreme Court Needs an Outsider
I admit to being shocked that I am not alone in this assessment, and that my fellow traveller is a Yale Law professor. No truer words have been spoken in a very long time. The Constitution is not a document which requires judicial experience, or even a law degree, and we would be better if about half of the courts members were not lawyers at all. As it sits, we have a court made up of too much theory, and not enough actual experience.
Anyway, good article, and something we all should consider, especially President Obama.
