SCOTUS, Harvard, and Obamacare

by Nathan Harden

When Chief Justice Roberts was nominated to the Supreme Court, all we heard about was how brilliant he was, what a fine legal scholar he was, and how high he placed in his class at Harvard Law. And remember how relieved we all felt when he replaced the less brilliant, non-Harvard-educated Harriet Miers as the nominee?

Being brilliant is no virtue when one is brilliantly wrong.

Right about now Harriet Miers is looking like a rock-solid choice.
