Should an inexperienced person be appointed to the Supreme Court? Its not just because she never served as a judge, this is not required by the Constitution.
Earl Warren was probably the best known Supreme Court Justice. He was elected District Attorney of Alameda country (Oakland California), state Attorney-General, then Governor of California. Warren had a lot of political experience before being named to the first vacancy on the Supreme Court. He later resigned when another Republican was elected President.
How does that compare to a candidate who only has experience as an academic or an appointed official? Working for corporations is not the best background for a politically important post. The Senate is not required to agree with every choice of the President, and has rejected many candidates since the 1960s. Some with better credentials than the current nominee.
