Best Answer

Jefferson was concerned that the Supreme Court would create an oligarchy (a form of government where power is concentrated in the hands of an elite group). He was also concerned that the judiciary would abuse the power, which he never acknowledged as constitutionally valid, and become a despotic branch of government. He believed judicial review violated the separation of powers in the Constitution.

Can judicial review only happen at the US Supreme Court?

No. Any court can declare a law unconstitutional if it is relevant to a case being tried or appealed before it. In the federal system, judicial review is most often practiced by the Article III (constitutional) courts that make up the Judicial Branch of the US government. The US Supreme Court is the final arbiter of constitutionality.Judicial BranchUS District CourtsUS Court of International TradeUS Court of Appeals Circuit CourtsSupreme Court of the United States

What sitting Vice-President has run against a sitting President?

This happened in 1800 when VP Thomas Jefferson ran against President John Adams. In those days the presidential candidate with the second most votes became vice president so Jefferson was the VP because he lost to Adams in 1792. Since then the Constitution has been amended so that the president and vice-president are from the same party. so it is not likely to happen again.

How might the president limit the powers of the supreme court?

All members of the Supreme Court are nominated by the President and confirmed by Congress. So, while the Supreme Court can freely exercise its powers, the President gets to choose the people he wants to add to the court. Normally, the President only adds new members when previous members retire or die, however, it has sometimes happened that the President has simply expanded the size of the court in order to be able to add more members sooner. By choosing people who are of the same ideology as himself, a President can get the kind of court rulings that he wants. (I might have phrased this "he or she" as I normally do, but of course, America has never yet had a female President. It could still happen, some year.)


How is the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court chosen?

He (or she) is nominated by the President of the United States and confirmed by a simple majority (51%) vote of the Senate. All Supreme Court Justices are nominated by the president; no person becomes a Supreme Court Justice without a presidential nomination. Nominees are then voted on by the Senate. If the Senate rejects a nominee, which does happen, then the president chooses another nominee. If the President selects an Associate Justice to become Chief Justice, he or she is said to be "elevated," rather than appointed. The Chief Justice remains Chief Justice until resignation (or death), and the person nominated by the president to take the vacant seat becomes the Chief Justice.
