What credentials/background should the new Supreme Court nominee have?
John Paul Stevens is retiring. He is currently the only Justice on that court with a military background. He is also the only Protestant. (The others are Jewish and Catholic)
Should this be a consideration for the nominee?
Should an atheist be nominated?
We currently have one black, one hispanic, and two women on the court. Does there need to be a quota on anything?
All the current justices have a background on the bench. Is that a requirement?
