“For all intents and
purposes, (FDR) was not just president of (the United States)
during World War II; he was president of the world. ... He was
running a global war. He was kind of the varsity operator, and

Coming up Sunday on C-SPAN: If Judge
Ketanji Brown Jackson is confirmed by the Senate, the U.S. will have
the most diverse Supreme Court in history. University of Tennessee
law professor Benjamin Barton, author of The Credentialed Court,
argues that while this is true on the surface, a closer look suggests
that there is a "radical similarity" among the justices —
especially when considering their educational and career paths after
graduating high school. He has spent the past 12 years studying the
backgrounds of Supreme Court justices throughout history and says
that the justices today come from more elite circles and have much
narrower experiences than their predecessors did, leading to a kind
of group-think that is often overlooked when examining the court. Tune in at 8 pm ET Sunday on C-SPAN.

the Crisis in Ukraine." We asked Professor Mearsheimer to
explain that and talked to him about being a realist, his military
service and his time in academia. Listen now on Booknotes+.
