Naked Capitalism has the article Anthony Kennedy and Our Delayed Constitutional Crisis.
With swing-vote status comes great responsibility, and in the most consequential — and wrongly decided — cases of this generation, O’Connor and Kennedy were the Court’s key enablers.
It’s enough to make you wonder if the Supreme Court was such a good idea from our founding ancestors. Many of you may not be old enough to remember how reviled the Warren Supreme Court was by the segregationists who were against the civil rights decisions. There are always going to be people who think the Supreme Court is horribly wrong. Enshrining them in black robes is not going to make them into wise and unbiased people that everyone can look up to in awed reverence..
In the end, it is always about politics and power.
I’ll say this for Trump. Without him we might have gone on for another 8 years thinking that Democratic President Hillary Clinton was going to solve our problems.
