One of his "reforms" is the proposal that judges be appointed instead of elected. He calls it "merit selection." It's a crock. All this does is remove people from the politics. Judges will still be selected politically. It just won't be democratic. The decision will be made by aristocrats appointed by other aristocrats. Not a good idea. In fact, even the term "merit selection" is misleading. It creates the false impression that judges who are democratically elected are somehow inferior to those who play politics with elitists.
Our judges have already become too isolated and arrogant. Don't take my word for it. Consider this passage from John Morganelli's recent book.
If anyone tries to tell you that judges are apolitical, tell them to call me. In my 26 years as a practicing lawyer, I have learned that judges are probably the most political animals in the political and legal jungle. Not all of them, of course. But many come to their positions with the same prejudices and bias that we all have from our life experience. The donning of the black robe allows them to hide behind the law while forcing their own ideas of how things should be. They usually use a tortured interpretation of the constitution to legislate and impose their thinking on the rest of us. This is especially true in the federal judiciary where all judges are appointed for life and have absolutely no accountability.
