This is to all you top notched debaters out there. Would you rather be a Prosecutor or Defense attorney?

Depends on the case.

If it was a ruthless property developer in the dock who was accused of cynically exploiting vulnerable tenants by charging them too much rent and not keeping their buildings in good repair, I'd like to be the prosecutor.

If it was a deprived old lady who was up in court for failing to pay rent to her unscrupulous landlord, I'd like to be the defence lawyer.

Head Prosecutor in all cases.

This way I can drop cases which aren't merited... or where I don't like the law :)... and pursue D-bags.

I'm hopefully going to be a defense attorney.

defense attorney they make the money... and if you are going to be a lawyer, pick the one where your supposed to be a complete a$$. Prosecutors careers are not about winning, its about finding the truth, using the justice system, working with it. A defense lawyer just abuses the laws, cherry picks information, and allows O.J to play golf and write books about "If I did it".

Pretty much. Though, you're painting prosecutors in much too good of a light.
Defense attorneys are motivated by money a lot of the time, but prosecutors are typically motivated by political aspirations.

It's all relative to serving clients who are innocent and in need of justice.

Actually I think it boils down to whether or not you believe there is good in the world

I believe there is good, but I believe evil strongly outweighs it.
