Contents The grand prize -- The framers' vision -- The first two centuries : an uneven judicial record -- The Supreme Court today : precarious majority postscript ... and state courts, too
Summary Constitutional scholar Clint Bolick examines the importance of judicial nominations in current and future political campaigns—not just in campaigns for president but also for the senators who confirm the nominees and the governors who appoint state court judges. He offers his opinion of the framers' original intentions—that the judiciary play a robust role in curbing abuses of government power and protecting individual rights—and provides both a historical perspective and a look at the courts' decisions on today's most contentious issues
