Negative Rights

This is, unfortunately, not the worst of it (links to .PDF):
JUSTICE GINSBURG: But I really would like you to answer the question that you didn't have an opportunity to finish answering, and that is: What other enumerated rights? What does the privileges and immunities of United States citizenship embrace?

MR. GURA: The unenumerated rights, Justice Ginsburg?

Ladies and gentlemen, the Supreme Court of the United States of America. The popular wisdom is correct: anyone can grow up to be a Justice, Senator, or President. Anyone.
