Evaluating Rehnquist

Stuart Taylor wrote this recent cover story in the National Journal. It strikes me as a fair evaluation of CJ Rehnquist's service on the Supreme Court. It also reminds us that what makes a good Chief Justice is somewhat different from what makes a good Justice. It will be important to remember all the functions associated with that role when considering whether the individual nominated to serve as Rehnquist's successor is qualified for the office.
