Supreme Court stirs presidential race with its review of health care, immigration cases
WASHINGTON (AP) ' The Supreme Court is preparing what could be blockbuster rulings on health care and immigration shortly before the presidential election.
President Barack Obama sometimes seems to be running against the court, or at least its conservative members. Whether that will sway voters in November is unclear.
The public receives far less information and visual imagery of the Supreme Court than it does of the White House and Congress.
GOP strategists say it will be a big setback for Obama if the court overturns his signature health care law.
But they also say Republican candidate Mitt Romney would have to tread carefully. He pushed a law that required people to obtain health coverage when he was governor of Massachusetts.
Democrats call it a partial model for Obama's plan.
