  •  not with Scalia! (0+ / 0-)

    but with Obama some of the Justices will retire and perhaps we can get a shift back. This is a situation where Judical activism.. the judge pushing the boundry/interpretation of law.... could introduce this...but it would overthrow some hefty Supreme Court cases.
    I know people mock Wikipedia but I bet if you looked up "strict scrutiny" and "protected classes"  it would quickly link you to how this level of "scrutiny' works...and doesn't.  It is very interesting thing about law... alll these nice codified things that sound so great and then when in actual play in a courtromm are airless bags....
