    From the moment John Roberts, the chief justice of the United States, blundered through the Oath of Office at Barack Obama's inauguration, the relationship between the Supreme Court and the White House has been confrontational. Both men are young, brilliant, charismatic, charming, determined to change the course of the nation - and completely at odds on almost every major constitutional issue. One is radical; one essentially conservative. The surprise is that Obama is the conservative.

    What did you like best about The Oath? What did you like least?

    It was well written as I thought it would be.


    What aspect of Robertson Dean’s performance would you have changed?

    He did quite well


    Was The Oath worth the listening time?

    Only if you buy most everything the political left spouts. Both side of the political arguement have points. The problem is when the press, or books only want to examine things thru their eyes and with facts contured to fit their way of thinking. A really good writer should leave you wondering what side the writer is really on. Toobin went in to extreme detail to explain the right movements of the court. The left barely got mentioned with little real details.The Constition was written to specify, and limit Government power and reach. Most every court fight is about that power. All forms of Government take power they have no right to, and never give it up. To be worth the money I spent, I would rather have not have it constantly thown in my face, what side of the arguement Toobin is on.
