LOL Marshall was a staunch


Marshall was a staunch Federalist and enemy of Jeffersonianism as SCOTUS Chief Justice. He, more than perhaps any other official before or since, was responsible for carving out SCOTUS role as we know it today and for cementing the supremecy of the federal govt over state govts. He emasculated the concept, argued and understood by many constituion ratifiers, that the states that created the constitution had final say in whether or not the federal govt was acting constitutionally.
