AMY KLOBUCHAR (D-MN): “[I]f We Just Put Judges On The Court That Have Handled No Difficult Cases, That Haven’t Been In The Arena, Or People Who Have Never Been Judges Before And So They Didn’t Have Those Difficult Decisions, I Don’t Think We’d Have A Strong Judiciary.” (Judiciary Committee, Executive Business Meeting, 6/10/10)
