Hopes and Fears

The Souter Factor - What makes tough conservative justices go soft? By Dahlia Lithwick

Dahlia's back! How I've missed her. (She was on maternity leave.)

This thorough article explores the various reasons why Supreme Court justices tend to drift to the left during their tenures. I, of course, prefer theory number three--seeing the light--but think the "mean ol' Nino" theory has merit as well. There's no point trying to excerpt, though--any article by Dahlia is a must-click. Enjoy!
