Judiciary or legislature?

I’ll admit that I’ve thought about it.  If I had a choice, would I go into the judiciary or the legislature?  According to this Pittsburgh Tribune-Review article, women are finding it easier to go one route over the other.  One political scientist commented:

Lawyers think about running for judge. But we have to encourage men and women to think about running for the Legislature

Personally, I would hate the “politics” with being in the legislature. I’m sure there are politics with being a judge too, but I would think there is a lot of discretion as well.  Being in the legislature on the other hand, you’re at the mercy of so many political forces… I don’t think I could handle it.

In Canada, we have made strides in getting female judges but in the legislature, it’s a different story.
