Nagel to the Court
By Maimon Schwarzschild

Mickey Kaus shrewdly recommends Robert F. Nagel for the Supreme Court. Nagel has been our colleague at the University of San Diego Law School, and would make a superb Justice. Nagel's book "Constitutional Cultures" is the best and most thoughtful study of judicial review in many years. For quality of mind and temperament, a President could hardly do better than to nominate Nagel. Instapundit seconds the idea ("good suggestion"!) but says "I doubt it will happen". Why so pessimistic??
