Politicians on the Supreme Court?

Al Hunt is usually thoughtful in his commentary, but what could he be thinking to suggest that we need politicians on the Supreme Court?

We have career politicians in the executive and legislative branches who toady up to lobbyists and who sell out to party machines. We don’t need more of the same on The Bench.

 We need scholars of the Constitution who can discern if the laws handed up by politicians meet the standards of Hamilton, Madison and Jay; not the special interests of Democrats, Republicans or Corporate America.
