The Obama White House and the Supreme Court

092612_oath.jpg

Tuesday on RadioWest we’re talking with legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin about the fraught relationship between America’s highest justice and its commander-in-chief. Toobin says that when Chief Justice Roberts flubbed newly-elected President Obama’s inaugural oath in 2008, a very important relationship got off to a very tense start. Not much has changed in four years. In a new book, Toobin examines the uneasy rapport of two of the world’s most powerful men, both determined to change the course of American history via radically different agendas.
