The make-up of the SCOTUS was not intended to be, and should not be, a party-line issue.

The circus that started (at least in my memory) with the Bork nomination is not how the system is supposed to work. The Advise and Consent of the Senate is supposed to be about qualifications, not political positions.

Frankly, it's sad when the confirmations are so clearly divided based on party ideology.
