The Madisonian Precedent

by Jonathan H. Adler

I quite enjoyed Chief Justice Roberts’ Olson lecture last night.  It was informative and engaging. My favorite tidbit: After James Madison nominated Joseph Story and Gabriel Duvall to the Supreme Court, the Senate confirmed both <i>the next business day</i>.  Perhaps the Senate should consider reviving this tradition.
