Quotes: ““The President can believe in his heart of hearts that he is picking a conservative nominee, and he can be surprised.” | “Whether or not the public should be expected to understand is not the critical point. Obviously much of the complexity of law will try the public’s patience, even if the law is expressed plainly. The real problem is that even other lawyers cannot fathom what their colleagues are writing.””
