Some worry the nation’s high court has shifted too far to the right and see the recent nomination of Elena Kagan as perpetuating that trend.  Bob hosts a roundtable discussion to talk not only about the Kagan nomination, but also more generally about how the court is shaping up ideologically, recent rulings of the Roberts court, and a bit about the lower Federal courts.  Dahlia Lithwick is a contributing editor atNewsweek and senior editor at Slate where she covers the Supreme Court.  Randy Barnett is a professor at Georgetown University Law Center and author of Restoring the Lost Constitution: The Presumption of Liberty.  Geoffrey Stone is a professor at the University of Chicago Law School and author of Top Secret: When Our Government Keeps Us in the Dark.
