Larry Kudlow weighs in on the Ten Commandments cases argued last week before the Supreme Court (in part by my law school classmate and friend, Acting Solicitor General Paul Clement).

Back in 1983, in a case called March v. Chambers, the Supreme Court held that it was constitutional for Nebraska's state legislature to have chaplain, and to begin each session with a prayer. If prayer -- to God, mind you -- in the legislative chamber is OK, what's the problem with the Ten Commandments, especially if they're part of a display of "law-giving" texts, as they are in the case from Kentucky that was argued before the Supreme Court last week?
