In an increasingly polarized political climate, constitutional law expert Lee Strang provides the legal analysis behind proposed changes.

Federal judge nominations
“I do think that politics is certainly playing a role in the time it takes to nominate and confirm judges today, more than it ever has. If federal judges do all the things that they now do, like make decisions on issues such as abortion and [school] busing, then people of different political views are going to care a lot about the views of the judges.”

Health care reform
“If you'd asked me a year ago, I would have said pretty strongly that this case would be an easy slam-dunk for the Obama Administration. But today with so much protest, a divided vote, and polls that show the public is not behind this health- care reform bill, the [U.S.] Supreme Court wouldn't be as concerned about having a backlash if they struck down the bill.''
