1* Suppose the president nominates someone to serve as a judge or in a government position who is legally and professionally qualified for the job. Is it fair for a U.S. senator to oppose that nominee because of disagreements over ideology or judicial philosophy?


2* Should every person the president nominates to serve as a judge or in a government position receive an up or down vote on the floor of the Senate?
