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.
