SCOTUS Arguments: 'A Train Wreck' For Obama Administration?Play
"A train wreck," for the Obama administration is how CNN legal analyst Jeffery Toobin described Tuesday's oral arguments on health care at the Supreme Court.
Toobin said President Obama's solicitor general, Donald Verrilli Jr., seemed unprepared. At one point, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg interrupted Verrilli's answer to tough questions on the individual mandate from Justice Anthony Scalia, appearing to help him out.
George Washington Law School professor Jonathan Turley says this is only the latest in a long series of missteps by the Obama administration's lawyers.
