Freeing the Constitution from the Judges


My old friend Robert Lowry Clinton has a fine primer on the proper understanding of judicial review here at NRO today, explaining its roots in the Constitution and its originally limited scope.  Clinton’s piece is a good companion to the cover feature in the latest NR, which has articles by Charles Kesler, Jack Wade Nowlin, Bradley C.S. Watson, Michael Greve, Christopher Wolfe, and me, all exploring various wrong turns our constitutional order has taken in recent years.
