Title: What do you think?

We had a discussion on this topic in class and I was just curious what your responses to this would be.

What is your opinion on the appointment of a US Supreme Court Justice who would not be trained in law?  Would it work?  Would it be beneficial?  Why did the Framers allow for the appointment?

I slept through a discussion on this the other day.  IMHO, I think the political appointments exist for the purpose of balancing the hard core legal theory with public policy which can be better represented by the political appointees.
