Pres. Obama actually has a piece on SCOTUSblog on the subject: “A Responsibility I Take Seriously.” laying out what he's looking for in a SCOTUS justice: 1) supremely qualified; 2) someone who interpets the law, doesn't make it; and 3) someone with real world experience, who, in particularly gray areas, won't rely on the law's footnotes but that experience.
The Post has an advantage: “Spotlight”'s managing editor, Marty Baron, is now the Post's managing editor. So he wrote his own piece about the experience. Colleagues seem to think Liev Schreiber's Baron was pretty good. “He nailed you,” people said. After two hours. Really, both pieces are in praise of actors as well as journalists.
