Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Bill Creating Dozens New Judgeships
The Senate Judiciary Committee today approved a bill that would create dozens of new federal judgeships.
The effective date of the bill is Jan. 20, 2009, which means we will have a new President. These are lifetime positions and the President makes the nominations.
The independence of our federal judiciary is one of the most important reasons we need a Democrat to be elected President. After 8 years of the appointment of conservative judges, the pendulum needs to swing back.
This is just another reason why when all is said and done with the presidential nomination, Democrats need to quickly come together to ensure that the party's candidate wins in November.
