History

In Texas, judges are elected by the people. In some other states, they are selected by the governor. At the federal level, judges are nominated by the president and confirmed by the president. Is the election of judges by the people a good idea? Why or why not? What are the arguments for and against? Find at least one article or video on the subject of the election of judges at the state level (summarize and cite) and offer your own opinion of the arguments made in the article or video.
