"There's really no question that [these] Supreme Court justices are the most conservative in our lifetime," Louis Michael Seidman, constitutional law professor at Georgetown University Law Center, said at a recent news briefing hosted by the Supreme Court Institute. "There is a question as to what kind of conservatives they are. Are they the kind of conservatives who want to tear up everything and start over again or conserve where we are, but not extend where we are? This case really poses that question."
Despite what Mr. Seidman writes, many provisions of the Constitution have clear, uncontroversial meanings.
