  1. I agree, and this expertly said, that the Suprme Court does make policy, law
    and are not neutral umpires. However, there is another alternative to
    vetting nominees. When the justices diagree five to four or six to three,
    the whole thing is sent to the American people as a plebiscite.

    The factor approach provides a useful way in which cases and precedents
    can be framed.
