Short Answers 1. The case of Marbury v. Madison is significant for three reasons. First off, the case set the precedent of the Supreme Court’s right to Judicial Review, the ability to review the constitutionality of laws. Also, this case showed the influence of political climate in decision-making. Finally, Marbury v. Madison shows that a small issue can have large results. 2. The percent of incumbents elected may not be a good measure of incumbent strength because incumbents only bother to run if they have already calculated that they are going to win. Also, incumbents have already established a stronger base of support throughout their last term and have better resources than their challenger. 3.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
