Odds of Hanging On

If you are able to become a judge, your chances of being re-elected and remaining one are good. Not a lot of turnover in this position, especially if you’re a federal judge and are appointed during good behavior, which generally means for life, unless you take the law literally into your own hands (or a bribe). If anyone comes at you and tries to fire you, you can just have their ass thrown in jail. Better be quick on that gavel though.
