Sunstein on Supreme Court Visionaries:
Over at the New Republic, Cass Sunstein has an interesting essay on the current Supreme Court. (Link via Howard.) An excerpt:
The justices of the Supreme Court have historically included people who seemed, even during their service, to be genuine visionaries. But things are different today. Notwithstanding its unsurpassed level of competence, the Court lacks true visionaries--in a way that tells us a great deal about the nature of contemporary constitutional law.
