This is a slight misquote of my 

"The Nomcom's goal should be to select the best qualified candidates from the 
pool of volunteers. The confirming bodies should confirm any candidate they

N.B.; Reasonable people can differ on whether any given candidate is fully 
qualified and the fact the Nomcom considers someone qualified is simply input 
into the CBs deliberations as opposed to a given fact.
