John Roberts,最高法院法官提名人的一段话

"Somebody asked me, you know, ‘Are you going to be on the side of the little guy?’ " he said. "And you obviously want to give an immediate answer, but, as you reflect on it, if the Constitution says that the little guy should win, the little guy’s going to win in court before me. But if the Constitution says that the big guy should win, well, then the big guy’s going to win, because my obligation is to the Constitution. That’s the oath."

宪法就是一个规则。作为唯一有权解释规则的最高法院,一位法官,他的责任只对这个规则负责。如果大家都觉得这个规则不好,那国会(制定规则的)可以对规则进行修订。但是,在规则被修订之前,规则必须被遵守。

他的这段话虽然听上去有些没有同情心,不过roberts的责任是对于一个大家都可以看到并且同意过的规则,而不是谁都说不清道不明的属于个人的同情心或者爱或者恨。

两百多年前的宪法的修订者们,真是到了今天,还要让人赞叹一声,细致远见。
