If I had spilled my sentences across the page in the disorderly way Ramesh responds to them, I suppose I would agree with his one-liners. But my argument proceeded more solidly. Yet from the jumble he assembles I would make one observation. My argument is for depoliticizing court nominations in as much as that is possible. That does not seem to be his wish. He is for the politics of the moment. I am for the enduring usefulness of the Constitution.
