Warren’s early adoption of progressive Hiram Johnson’s platform of equal justice for all  — bode well in later years  — in which Warren was haunted by Warren’s own betrayal of Johnson’s platform after Warren’s anti-“Jap” years in office.

Some observers have suggested Roberts’ philosophy of judicial restraintor the lack of Supreme Court precedents available “to say the individual mandate crossed a constitutional line” played a part in his decision.   The article reported that after Roberts “withstood a month-long, desperate campaign to bring him back to his original position”, with Kennedy, who is typically the swing vote in 5–4 decisions, leading the effort, the conservatives essentially told him “You’re on your own.”  The conservative dissent was unsigned and did not, despite efforts by Roberts to convince them to do so, make any attempt to join the Court’s opinion, an unusual situation in which the four justices “deliberately ignored Roberts’ decision, the sources said, as if they were no longer even willing to engage with him in debate.”
