I’m not necessarily committed to 12 years, but definitely in favor of some constitutionally-defined # of years.

Just remember it cuts both ways. Scalia sat there for 29+ years.
Between 12 and 20 years.

It wouldn't take a constitutional amendment to do that for appellate and district court judges.

As political as these appointments are, I'm not sure if a time limit is a great idea. Even if you cut it off at 20 years, that would mean 4 current judges would have to be replaced (2 conversatives, 2 liberals). I doubt the Senate would be in favor of that, and it would also be a huge issue with most Americans, depending on who had control of the Presidency.

I think a mandatory retirement age would be a better solution - somewhere around 75. That would create the appointment of younger justices, which may or may not be a good thing.

In either case, a monumental change like this would have to be 'grandfathered' in, and should only be enforced to new justices moving forward.

I think a mandatory retirement age makes more sense than a fixed term. But not a huge proponent of either.

There is a lot of truth to what she is saying. Sexism was very much alive and well during the election. The way Trump would talk down to her was insulting and appalling. This country could have had back to back the two greatest presidents of all time and our own inherit sexism and macho head games wouldn’t allow us to elect a female president.

People who didn't vote for Hilary because she's a woman would not have voted for a democrat anyway, so the sexism is cancelled out.

You grandfather in current court members. The term is for future appointments.

Right now, there is a preference for younger judges so that they are on the court longer. I don't think that is a good thing.

Well she was. And I'm not sure any candidate has ever talked down to the American people like Hillary. And she certainly talked down to DJT.

2 greatest presidents? Only if you start counting from the bottom, Obama and her would have turned US to Cuba. She always spoke nice to us deplorables.
