    Was there ever a time when a non-judge is nominated for the supreme court?

    EDIT: LBJ's lawyer was nominated and served for four years, so this is not unprecedented.

    I don't believe Rehnquist was a judge prior to being appointed to SCOTUS. Haven't researched it thoroughly, though.
    Recognizing that I volunteered...

    At first, and second, look a disappointing nomination.

    You're right. He was a law clerk before being appointed as an assistant attorney general under Nixon.

    How would ya know, just like Roberts no background to go on. The only qualifications I can see she has is 1) A law degree 2) A woman 3) Loyal to Bush, that's it. As it stands right now, it seems to be just more of the same from the Bush admin., Cronyism.

    I think this one should definetly be grilled more intensively than Roberts.

    It was just a question, that pic must have been one that wasnt very flattering.. and judging by the google it was..

    But werent the republicans bragging that they had more beautifull women than the democrats?
    I can remember a thread like that..

    <edit> just found that thread:

    I agree, in the article it seems that the fact that she is a big supporter of bush was her biggers pre..

    Funny that even the google on pics of her shows 2 solo pics of bush and a couple of them together..

    I would think there's quite a bit more to her "background" than just a Law Degree. I mean she did put that degree to work right? She's not a homemaker w a degree

    Agree that she should be grilled a bit more than Roberts.

    I think most liberals and conservatives will agree with you on that.
