Justice Alito's Reaction  —  There was the president, and there were six members of the Supreme Court.  The few words from the one to the others went by quickly.  The president's tone was mild compared to the animation in some other parts of the speech, and I thought he looked momentarily awkward.

“Not true”: Alito mouths words as Obama hammers Supreme Court  —  He's on the far left of your screen, seated to the right of Sotomayor.  Politico's calling it his Joe Wilson moment.  —  When you hear the president of the United States demagoging the First Amendment, you sit there and you take it, son.

Waiting for Barack  —  Every Hill office I've spoken to in the past week has had the same complaint.  “Where,” they ask, “is the White House?”  —  There's been no clear message on the way forward for health-care reform.  No clear articulation of preferences.  No public leadership to speak of.
