VIDEO: Supreme Power-Franklin Roosevelt and the Supreme Court

by Jeff Shesol Wednesday, May. 05, 2010 at 3:21 AM
mbatko@yahoo.com

The state can and must corrupt jobs when the private sector is corrupted, fears for the future and speculates on foreign currencies.

Jeff Shesol is the author of “Supreme Power: Franklin Roosevelt and the Supreme Court.”

Supreme Power: Franklin Roosevelt vs. The Supreme Court
About the Program
Jeff Shesol recalls Franklin Roosevelt's confrontation with the U.S. Supreme Court who objected to vital elements of his New Deal legislation. In 1937 the President announced a plan to expand the court to ensure that liberal justices would outnumber conservatives. Mr. Shesol reports that President Roosevelt's plan failed but helped push through New Deal legislation while it created a fissure in the Democratic party that the author maintains led to future Republican ascendance. Jeff Shesol discusses his book with Jeffrey Toobin, staff writer at The New Yorker and senior legal analyst at CNN at the New York Historical Society in New York City.

"We care more about our green lawns than about songbirds. Pesticides are persistent and can't be simply repressed. Birds and fish have injested pollutants. Humility and arrogance are part of our collective life story. We are not in control of nature and have to think of the whole of things, the interlocking nature of life.."
