Will the Supreme Court Restore Our Democracy?

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments this morning in the Wisconsin redistricting case. That any of the justices can fail to see that extreme partisan gerrymandering (by either party) completely undermines the democratic process is shocking – and yet it was clear today that Justice Kennedy will cast the decisive vote in this critical case.

Kennedy did not ask any questions of the challengers in court today. Many observers say that bodes well for our side of this. Let’s hope they’re right – the fate of our democracy hangs in the balance.
