Analysis: What will you be looking for as you listen to the oral arguments this week?

What a great week coming up: Judicial Branch check on the Congress and president, judicial review, commerce clause, solicitor general, mandate, litigation, adversarial process, standing, precedents... all because the Court used the "Rule of Four" to grant a writ of certiori!

With Super Tuesday coming up, give your analysis and opinion of the current nominating PROCESS to be the party's nominee.

Discuss any or all of the following: front loading, winner take all vs. proportional distribution of delegates, primaries, caucuses, the length of the process, the money that is raised and spent, stump speeches, running to the right (for the GOP) and to the left (for the Dems.) in the primary process and back to the middle for the general, placing Iowa and New Hampshire first.
