    I think Gov. Walker should NOT appoint a new WI Supreme Court Judge. I think that should be left up to the next governor that is elected. The next election is in 2018, so we should wait until the next governor is elected and that person should make the appointment, right ? I think the same artificial standards that are being mandated to our current POTUS should also be followed by our governor.
