The Supreme Court - The Hidden History with Thom Hartmann
The Supreme Court, a Hidden History, is based on Thom Hartmann's book of the same name. Leila Conners and Thom Hartmann discuss the history of the Supreme Court and how the Court's use of judicial review has made it the most powerful of the three branches of government; an outcome the founders and framers did not have in mind.
