It is not good for people to elect a judge because people may have certain feelings towrds a man/woman trying to become a judge. Therefore, he/she will not get elected. The president knows more about the candidates for judges than we do anyway.

The good is that the public is involved so that it is not just the "crony" of the judge selecting him; the bad is that the public may be swayed by stuff that is not really relevant but stuff that is used, as in Public relations, to portray the person as someone people would want...but in reality he or she is a jerk.
