The Supreme Court has agreed to take on a challenge to the Democrats’ health care law, particularly the issue of the individual mandate.

A landmark 5-and-a-half hours have been set aside for oral arguments - and that’s provoked a strong push for an exception to the rule that forbids cameras before the Court.

C-SPAN authored a letter yesterday calling for an exception that would allow cameras - and today Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) put out a release calling for LIVE camera coverage of the Court hearing, an effort she called a bipartisan effort alongside Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA).

Experts say it’s doubtful the Court will change it’s policy - or even amend the usual delayed release of audio for the arguments (the tapes are released at the end of the week, not the day arguments are delivered).

What do you think?  Should this case warrant an exception to the rule on cameras?
