December 6 (Monday): Social Issues
1. How much have the attitudes toward women described by Morone been eradicated in the contemporary U.S.? What impact, if any, has federalism had on this change of attitude?
2. What lessons does the New York abortion law case teach about using the federal system to achieve your political goals?
3. How will social conservatives use federalism to advance their goals, in light of the 2010 election results? How will liberals / progressives respond?
