The Constitution is rather vague about the qualifications to become a federal judge, even for those who sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. It also gives the President the right to nominate or name a federal judge. but the Senate has “advise and consent” authority. Historically, politics hasn’t played a major role in Senate confirmation of a President’s Supreme Court nominee, but that began to change during the Reagan years and the process is certainly political today. Your White Paper is to make recommendations to the Senate for new rules (possibly an amendment?) for how you think this process could be improved.
