The first preview from our Interview Issue: Sandra Day O’Connor Interviews John Paul Stevens.
O’Connor: It appears our nation has become increasingly polarized. Has the role of the court changed along with that polarization?
Stevens: I have a great deal of confidence in the ability of the court to continue to do the best that it can with the difficult issues that come before it … There is a lot of polarization out there, and one of the reasons for it is all the gerrymandering that is permitted now, that I used to write against … I was on the losing side many, many times.
