Too bad his supernatural powers of foresight deserted him in 2000, but really, who could have seen Bush v. Gore coming? And, quite frankly, a bunch of people don't want that ridiculous case even discussed.
From the New York Times:
At a law school Supreme Court conference that I attended last fall, there was a panel on "The Rehnquist Court." No one mentioned Bush v. Gore, the most historic case of William Rehnquist's time as chief justice, and during the Q. and A. no one asked about it. When I asked a prominent law professor about this strange omission, he told me he had been invited to participate in another Rehnquist retrospective, and was told in advance that Bush v. Gore would not be discussed.
The ruling that stopped the Florida recount and handed the presidency to George W. Bush is disappearing down the legal world's version of the memory hole, the slot where, in George Orwell's 1984 government workers disposed of politically inconvenient records. The Supreme Court has not cited it once since it was decided, and when Justice Antonin Scalia, who loves to hold forth on court precedents, was asked about it at a forum earlier this year, he snapped, "Come on, get over it."
"Come on, get over it?"
Hold on a second... No.
Gore won, the Court and Bush and all his people subverted democracy, you get over it.
