This Article is an edited transcript of a presentation I gave at the annual Georgetown Journal of Law & Public Policy symposium on “Hyper-Partisanship and the Law” on March 20, 2012. I argue that nothing is wrong with the judicial nomination/confirmation process per se, but that its politicization is a function of the growth of the federal government beyond its constitutional parameters.
