Judicial elections

Well, I just wrote a long post on this interview about judicial elections, which promptly disappeared when Firefox crashed inexplicably. I don't feel like writing it again, so here's the summary: judicial elections bad. We don't need any more partisanship. Judges should be chosen by the executive after being vetted by a judicial panel, with optional legislative confirmation. To ensure things don't get too wacky, there can be one election after five years of service, recall of judges, or mandatory retirement (or any combination of the above). Save the partisanship for the legislature and constitutional offices.
