United States Supreme Court Breaking News: Give Us New Voting Rights Act

Donna Brazile says President Obama must persuade a polarized Congress to preserve the landmark law that protects citizens from discriminatory anti-voter rules that emerge every election cycle. The court is set to rule on two cases involving the issue, but procedural wrinkles make it possible the decisions might be inconclusive. The Supreme Court has sent a Texas case on race-based college admissions back to a lower court for another look. The court's 7-1 decision leaves unsettled many of the basic questions about the continued use of race as a factor in college admissions. The compromise ruling throws out the decision by the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld the Texas admission plan.
