Rauch on the Court

Jonathan Rauch has an engrossing (if quite long) post about the direction of the Court and different strains of judicial conservatism.

It's definitely worth a read, especially the discussion of Cass Sunstein's typology of judicial philosophies, the Kelo case (for which the Court has been criticized for deference to the political branches), and for the role of the courts in the Schiavo case-and-law (which has led to "conservative" criticism of the courts' use of methodological conservatism -- or what might be better described as simply following existing laws and judicial procedures).
