My question (which no one seems to be asking) is how does a mother with 7 kids somehow build a career to earn a top judicial job?

But having said that, this is a good piece. This kind of job has an ability to temper people once they are on the inside. It'll be interesting to see what kind of decisions she makes after she assumes office.

And there is an indirect political accountability--even with these lifetime appointments.
