On the 6/28/12 show, Thom Hartmann made it seem like Jefferson thought elected new Reps. was to solution rather than judicial review. But he left out Jefferson's support of nullification as a way to deal with an overarching federal government.

Nulllification would truly make the Constitution a suicide pact. And just where is this states right given the Supremacy Clause?

BTW, I don't buy Thom's argument on judicial review. Without it the Federal Judiciary can't be much of a check on the other two branches.

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
