turns out to be a constitutionally required qualification for only one kind of office in the U.S.: Maryland judges (who must be “most distinguished for integrity, wisdom and sound legal knowledge”). The Kentucky Constitution of 1792 also provided that Kentucky senators should be “men of the most wisdom, experience, and virtue,” but the current constitution doesn’t. [UPDATE: I originally erroneously attributed this to the current constitution.] The Georgia pledge of allegiance requires people to “pledge allegiance to the Georgia flag and to the principles for which it stands: Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation,” but that’s merely a statutory requirement.
