Abstract

From the op-ed:

"Alexander Hamilton famously predicted in "The Federalist" that the courts should be “considered as the bulwarks of a limited Constitution against legislative encroachments.” Still, it is fair to say that [the Founding generation] would have been uncomfortable with the fact that the Court’s docket and decisions are increasingly seen as just one more dimension of our never-ending election cycles."
