Supermajority to reject?

Apparently, James Madison thought that a 2/3s majority of the Senate should be required to reject judicial nominees, the point being that the role of the Senate would simply be to catch and reject extreme cases. As one commentor notes, "Taking a bipartisan coalition to reject any nominee, now that's an idea."
