After the way judges have become permanent legislatures, yes, they should be elected. The idea that that would skew their rulings has been completely supplanted by the reality that in being insulated from electoral pressures, they act like politicians who don't have to worry about being reelected.

No way! That's all we need, judges backed by the bankrolls of giant corporations, running for office. If that happens, you can kiss what is left of judicial independence good-bye.
