Popular discourse about the Supreme Court often seeks to characterize
its direction in political terms. Yet the Rehnquist Court, while it has
undoubtedly turned rightward, has never turned as starkly rightward as
predicted in such accounts,1 even though Presidents Reagan and Bush
between them filled five seats on the current Court.
