Judicial Qualifications

In the light of Judge Leslie Southwick having his nomination being taken back up today I wanted to try and put forth an open thread with more of a question.

What do you think are proper qualifications for a Federal Judge?

I think Polly, one of our new writers, is working on a Southwick post and you have already seen posts by me and comments by Representative Green on the subject so I open up the floor to you, the reader.

I think the balance of judicial decisions should be an indicator. we had a 2+ year period where no plaintiff decision was untouched at the MS Sup Ct level. ALL were overturned, reduced, or altered in some way. when judges decided consistently against entire classes (not in the class action sense) of litigants that have a right to the courts, i find them to be abhorrent and unqualified.
