Term Limits for Chief Justice
Before anyone is confirmed under Bush, Democrats should demand term limits for all Justices on the Supreme Court. If Roberts is confirmed as Chief Justice, he could easily be there for thirty years, a ridiculous prospect of sustained oligarchy in a democratic society. The current system creates the incentive to appoint younger lawyers with less experience to the Supreme Court, bypassing those with more experience.
