« Great "Newsroom" speech: America isn't greatest country | Main | Romney lies about Obamacare adding trillions to deficit »

Brian, you truly are a political genius. Congratulations on making such a GREAT prediction the night before the Supreme Court gave a thumbs up to the Affordable Care Act.

I'm sorry you haven't gotten any other effusive compliments so far. But you're entirely justified in praising yourself. However, keep in mind that much of the credit belongs to Linda Greenhouse, since she gave you the impetus to believe in your own intuition.

Here's a link to her post-decision analysis of Chief Justice Roberts, who cast the decisive vote. It does sound like Roberts was motivated by some extra-legal factors -- notably his legacy and the Court's reputation.

I second that effusive comment. Nice call!

Very impressive prognostication.
