C2020 in The New Yorker

Printer-friendly version

In this week's New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin draws on The Constitution in 2020 to illuminate President Obama's (unique? idiosyncratic? pragmatic?) approach to the courts and the judicial appointment process. Toobin raises important questions about the role judges have played and should play in reform movements, all while suggesting - echoing several contributors to The Constitution in 2020 - that the new frontier for change may not be the courts, but popular politics.
