Do you?Do you have any point to make that would be at all relevant?
I don't know, maybe because you're on a political discussion forum.Why would I need one?
Given the illustrious history of non-Judges on the SCOTUS, I can't see any good reason, though I can see a few possible political ones.Why not ask the question... why hasn't a non-judge been appointed for almost 40 years?
Scalia, on the other hand seems to think as I do. I think a better question to ask is why he feels that way. Why would he hold that a diversity of backgrounds is more important than conformity (of backgrounds)? Does he believe that such diversity brings a certain balance of perspectives to the highest court in the land?
