    Just a personal commentary on the stakes.

    BTW --

    I think Justice Kennedy has summed up the argument much better than I ever could:

    "Can you create commerce in order to regulate it?" he asked. "I understand we must presume laws are constitutional" until it is demonstrated otherwise, he told Solicitor General Donald Verrelli, representing the administration. But he said the administration has "a heavy burden of justification."

    LG: You know what? You got spunk. MR: Well, Yes... LG: I hate spunk!
