““I think a committee in general is a good safeguard, because they can review the candidates and make sure the most qualified ones are chosen. It’s just a check on the system.””
““It seems to me that it probably wouldn’t make a difference one way or the other because an elite group of people would be choosing either way. It’s not a democratic process.””
““I think it sounds reasonable. If justices go through the same process on the national level, it would seem appropriate at the state level.””
““I think a committee would be preferable. It’s always better to have more than one opinion.””
