President Obama and Chief Justice Roberts Take Their Feud Public

Hosted by

During his State of the Union address, President Obama had harsh words for the US Supreme Court, for its decision that corporations' free speech rights allow them to contribute to political campaigns without limitation. As Democrats cheered, Justice Samuel Alito shook his head and mouthed, "That's wrong." But yesterday, Chief Justice John Roberts told law students in Alabama that the joint session of Congress had "degenerated into a political pep rally." Robert Barnes reports for the Washington Post.
