In this brief comment I want to explore the reasons for this phenomenon. I will illustrate my point by reference to the seminal case of Myers v. United States, which is not discussed in the symposium contribution by Calabresi and Yoo not surprising, because that case was decided well after the period upon which they focus here. After that, I will suggest some reasons why the removal power, despite its limited substantive importance, retains its grip on the academic and political imagination.
