Scrutiny Cuts Both Ways

I agree completely with the editorial "A Process as Near Perfect as Possible" (Sept. 10). The job of the Senate panel is to determine whether the nominee has the qualifications to sit on the Supreme Court, regardless of political ideology. Yet, while we hope that the Senate panel will conduct itself in a professional manner, perhaps we need also to remind President Bush that it is his duty to rise above the lower political life forms and nominate the best-qualified judge, regardless of political ideology.
