How to become an Federal Judge 101

Two different views are reflected in a couple of the recent nominees.

Gene Pratter, for example has given almost $20,000 recently to Republicans and their causes. A significant amount of that to local Senator and Judiciary Chairman to be, Arlen Spector.

On the other hand Raymond W. Gruender, nominee for the Eigth Circuit court of Appeals has given very little, to anyone.

So if you are a practicing attorney with a desire to be a federal judge, don't get out that checkbook quite yet.
