The answer is still no, and this time it comes from Pulitzer Prize-winning Supreme Court expert Linda Greenhouse, who says that McKenna's belief that he can torpedo the new health care reform law via the U.S. court system is "fantasy."

Fourteen state attorneys general — 13 in a coalition led by Bill McCollum of Florida and one, Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II of Virginia, going it alone — filed lawsuits this week asking federal judges to declare the new Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act unconstitutional. The plaintiffs do not exactly mince words. The new law violates “the core constitutional principle of federalism upon which this nation was founded,” the Florida complaint declares. It is “contrary to the foundational assumptions of the constitutional compact,” Virginia claims.

The Web is filled with commentary and debate over the merits of the states’ arguments that the new law exceeds Congress’s authority to regulate interstate commerce and violates the 10th Amendment’s protection for state sovereignty.

Interesting theoretical questions, to be sure. But the only real question is whether any of these arguments will find a warm reception from at least five Supreme Court justices. The answer, almost certainly, is no.
