Justice Scalia Speaks On His Originalist View of Constitutional Interpretation

I'm a big fan of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. In fact, he's my favorite Supreme Court Justice, because his view of constitutional interpretation via "originalism" is very flexible - as it leaves the political process to run its course whenever possible, rather than freezing issues by "constitutionalizing" wide areas. Despite the fact that many legal minds and most law school students I've run into view Scalia as an extremist on the right-wing, I dissent with their view.

Watch a recent speech by Justice Scalia detailing his view of constitutional interpretation here in a 58 minute speech - as RealMedia.
